The action of the play takes place in the living room of the Gailbraith family before and after Christmas and on New Year’s Eve.

Just two days before Christmas the Gailbraith family find themselves in chaos when the married daughter is rushed into hospital for the “happy event”.

This year the play will take place from Wednesday, February 27 to Saturday, March 2 March with the return of a few familiar faces from last year.

Doors open at 7.30pm each night with curtain up at 8pm.
