Script – Mother Christmas

Mother Christmas written by David Lewis
Published by Josef Weinberger Plays

From the publishers:

Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas future are all very familiar, but in the hands of a dysfunctional family intent on throwing annual fancy dress parties on Christmas Eve under the watchful eye of their matriarch Maggie, seasonal festivities are destined to spiral out of control. Over the course of three Christmases, Maggie, her children Davina and Ben and her granddaughter Grace attempt to have themselves a merry little Christmas but past resentments and recriminations inevitably rise to the surface each time. Surely one year will be full of peace and love and the true spirit of Christmas? Don’t bet on it …

David Lewis’ Sunspots received its world premiere at Hampstead Theatre downstairs in 2015 and his plays Bad Faith, Misconceptions, Hurting, Monkey’s Uncle, Greenwash, How To Be Happy and Seven Year Twitch have all premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, where he won a Pearson Bursary in 1999. Misconceptions has been produced throughout the UK and by theatres in Finland, Holland, Denmark, Greece and New Zealand, while the Georges Feydeau-inspired farce Monkey’s Uncle has also been produced throughout Europe and Australia
