A Christmas Getaway

Duration: 110

New Old Friends are back at Lichfield Garrick Studio for Christmas 2023!

It’s been a tough year and the Jameson family are all planning to enjoy a Christmas Eve getaway at their soon-to-be sold country home. The catch is, everyone planned to do it in secret; the daughter is with her lover, the mother is with the daughter's fiancé, the father is with the neighbour, the maid is with the local oik, and the underpaid butler is eyeing up both the housekeeper and the valuables.

Just four actors play multiple roles with lightning quick changes in this fast talking, fast-paced farce inspired by P.G. Wodehouse, Noel Coward, and classic British comedy presented with New Old Friends’ trademark flair.
