All Through The House

All Through The House




Tinderbox Theatre Company are delighted to present this riotously funny new comedy about family, feuds and feckin’ Christmas.

For the Moore family, Christmas is anything but merry. Trapped in a room full of exes, other halves and sworn enemies, all everyone wants is to make it through the day without committing tinsel based Ho Ho Homicide! But take a few explosive secrets, swirl them around with industrial quantities of Prosecco and a dash of butt-clenchingly awkward karaoke and you’ve got yourself a recipe for Christmas that nobody will forget – no matter how hard they try. More turkey, anyone?

Start a new tradition this year at this laugh out loud festive comedy – only at the Crescent.
