About This Show

It’s the “bloody” holidays… when toys and marriages break down and in-laws become out-laws! Just in time for the holiday season, Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings makes its return to the New York stage for the first time in over 20 years as Hudson River Repertory Company brings this hilarious and cynical comedy to the McGinn/Cazale Theater beginning November 20th. A talented ensemble cast, under the direction of Laurie Eliscu, brings to vivid life such rich and outrageous characters as the crusty uncle who is a gun fanatic, the accident-prone sister who can always be counted on to ruin the lamb, and her husband who sets the stage for the dreaded annual puppet show. Throw in a mad midnight tryst under the Christmas tree and it all adds up to classic Ayckbourn humor that gets right under the skin of family dynamics. The witty and acerbic Ayckbourn is one of the world’s most prolific, popular and widely performed contemporary playwrights.

Season’s Greetings, a thought-provoking gem for the holidays, will be rediscovered by New York audiences with a fresh approach by veteran director Laurie Eliscu that will bring the humor front and center. An Equity Approved Showcase.
