A 1972 play by Alan Ayckbourn which documents the changing fortunes of three married couples: Sidney, an ambitious tradesman, and his submissive wife Jane; architect and adulterer Geoffrey and his depressed wife, Eva; Ronald, a banker, and his alcoholic wife Marion. Set over three Christmases in the kitchens of the three couples, the play combines tragedy and farce to document the social rise and fall of the various participants and dissects their relationships with Ayckbourn’s trademark brilliance.
