    Christmas Eve.  Bettina and her husband Albert aren’t happy - Bettina’s mother is staying for the holidays. Which is awkward. Not least because Bettina’s mother met a man on the train. And now she’s invited him around for drinks…

    Family, betrayal and the inescapable presence of the past reverberate through the UK premiere of Roland Schimmelpfennig’s razor-sharp comedy about the rise of the new right across the globe.

    Schimmelpfennig is the most performed playwright in Germany, with productions of his work worldwide in over 40 countries.

    • What really counts is that Schimmelpfennig, in portraying the failure of liberal intellectuals to confront the hideous legacy of the past, has written a potent play for today. ★★★★
