Meet three couples in their three kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years. The "lower class" but very much up and coming Hopcrofts are in their bright new, gadget filled kitchen anxiously giving a little party for their bank manager and his wife and an architect neighbor. Next there are the architect and his wife in their neglected, untidy flat. Then the bank manager and his wife are in their large, slightly modernized, old Victorian style kitchen. Running like a dark thread through the wild comedy of behind the scenes disasters at Christmas parties is the story of the advance of the Hopcrofts to material prosperity and independence and the decline of the others. In the final stages the little man is well and truly on top, with the others, literally and unnervingly, dancing to his tune.… (més)

What happens when three couples get together three successive Christmases? When it's in the hands of Alan Ayckbourn, hilarity ensues. Nothing much really happens, just little, ordinary events (with the exception of one repeated attempt at suicide, foiled accidentally each time by people who don't even realize the woman is trying to commit suicide). It's just sort of a day in the life, but that day happens to be Christmas Eve, and the lives just happen to be people who represent the oddments of human society, people who are relentlessly ordinary though imagining themselves to be more than ordinary. As such, most of us can relate to them in some way. The standard male/female dichotomy might seem strange to an audience in the 21st century, but it reflects the life as many experienced it in the 1970s, and while some might find it dated, it can serve as a good reminder of why we left so much of that behind us.
