Synopsis

Comedy Play Script: 'Twas The Fight Before Christmas' by Devon Williamson

Think your family is complicated? Meet the most dysfunctional family you can imagine as they try to navigate Christmas. Peace on earth and good will to all men? Not likely! Ever since her husband died, Mary’s horrible adult children have been ruining Christmas. This year, Mary is determined to take Christmas back. 

The play is a comedic tale filled with clever dialogue and hilarious characters that will leave your audience giggling, sniggering and chortling out loud throughout.

It follows long-suffering mother Mary Harvey who attempts to reclaim Christmas – and her own life – back from her fantastically wicked daughters, Stella and Mandy.

Throw into the mix Jean Pierre, a suicidal French psychologist; Ivy, a paranoid frying-pan wearing neighbour, and Desmond, Mary's love-able but walking doormat of a son-in-law, and you've got the perfect recipe for a hilarious disaster that will leaving you wanting more.

An hilarious and uplifting Christmas comedy.
