Michael Strassen, who has previously directed Assassins, The Baker's Wife, The Fix and Billy at the Union, will direct a cast that comprises John Dorney, Abigail Rosser, Marianne Adams, Harry Saks, Matthew Carter, Pandora McCormick, Jim Mannering, Joanna Kirkland and Gavin Kerr. The play was last seen in London at the National Theatre in 2010, when Marianne Elliott directed a cast that included Mark Gatiss, Catherine Tate, Oliver Chris, Katherine Parkinson, Jenna Russell, Neil Stuke, David Troughton, Nicola Walker and Marc Wootton.
According to press materials, "it's not just the crackers that go off with a bang in this black comedy about a dysfunctional family set over the Christmas holiday. Alan Ayckbourn takes this seasonal ritual and injects it with tension and paranoia while the arrival of a handsome stranger to the mix results in dire consequences."
