RULES FOR LIVING - Theatre Royal Windsor

What's On

RULES FOR LIVING

RULES FOR LIVING

Everyone creates their own coping strategies or rules for living. But what happens when an extended family gathers for a traditional Christmas dinner, and each of them rigidly follows those rules?

Christmas day will never be the same again. As the drinks flow and the obligatory games intensify, family resentments rise and relationships are pulled apart with a bang – like oh so many Christmas crackers.  

Award-winning director Simon Godwin directs this new production of Sam Holcroft’s brilliant and darkly funny play following a critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre in 2015. Rules For Living is brought to the stage by English Touring Theatre, Rose Theatre Kingston and Royal & Derngate Northampton, the producing team who won the 2016 UK Theatre Award for Best Touring Production for The Herbal Bed.
