Bringing you a Christmas comedy to enjoy with your loved ones, Thatcher’s Boy Theatre are finishing the year on a festive and entertaining note with More Pudding Anyone? at The Butterfly Club for six shows only from 12 December 2017.
It may be a time for peace and forgiveness, but no Christmas would be normal without watching those you love turn back into children for the day, for better or worse. In the case of the Robertsons, it’s always for worse. All Julie wants is to uphold her Christmas traditions and have all her family under the same roof whilst she still can.
But her kids are no longer children and doing so is proving difficult, no matter how childish they act. Burnt turkeys, faces full of cream, an unconscious Santa Claus, a deceased Christmas tree, matching jumpers, and even a poorly timed proposal; Christmas with the Robertsons is never boring.
Written and directed by British actor and writer Kieran Gould-Dowen, More Pudding Anyone? is a farce of the festive variety – following a Melbournian family just like your own – as hilarity unfolds around the Christmas dinner table to bizarre extremes.
“Christmas is a time of togetherness but we all know it never goes smoothly,” says Kieran Gould-Dowen. “This cast is hilarious and truly captures that childish nature we’re all guilty of slipping into. Think National Lampoon live on stage. If you don’t laugh at this, you must be the Grinch.”
More Pudding Anyone? is a night of slapstick, quick fire wit, and hilarity; all enjoyed with The Butterfly Club’s custom made cocktail Merry Christmapolitan in hand. It’s perfect for a Christmas work party or even with those friends and family you see just once a year.
