Rabbit by Nina Raine
It's Bella's 29th birthday. Friends and former lovers meet for a drink to celebrate. But as the Bloody Marys flow, the bar becomes a battlefield... In the uncivil war between the sexes, what happens when females have the real fire-power: stockpiles of testosterone, lethal wit and explosive attitude? And what happens when patriarchy gets personal; when its your own father who is tragic and terminal? When the only man who really loved you is dying?
Nina Raine’s debut play was shortlisted for the 2004 Verity Bargate Award and won her the 2006 Evening Standard and Critic’s award for Most Promising Playwright.

Season's Greetings by Alan Ayckbourn
Now we don't want to start Christmas like this, do we?
Christmas has arrived in the Bunker household along with family and friends. Cheating at snakes and ladders, fighting over comic books... and that's just the adults.
Presiding over the festivities are two warring uncles, one a kindly, incompetent doctor with an interminable puppet show to perform; the other a bullying retired security guard who dominates the TV, brings toy guns for his nieces and determines there's a thief in their midst.
Alan Ayckbourn's masterly Season's Greetings offers a seriously entertaining look at the misery and high jinks of an average family Christmas.
