A Magical Christmas

£10.00£20.00

The Duffy family are, apparently, going to have a rather poor Christmas. Overdrawn at the bank, credit cards at their limit and overdue with their rent. Things are not improved when the landlord comes to call, Great Aunt Dora comes to stay and the family from hell also turn up unexpectedly. What they need is some help. Some Christmas magic. Now who could provide that? A Play for Christmas rather than a traditional pantomime.
