A family that plays together sleighs together…
A familiar premise – the family Christmas fraught with tensions and habitual misunderstandings – is upended into a theatrically inventive, hilarious comedy about the coping strategies we each adapt in life, for better or worse.
Drawing on theories of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Rules for Living is an intelligent study of our perfectionist culture that exposes the fascinating and complex neuroses beneath.
“Nothing prepared us for this play … hilarious” – The Guardian
