SynopsisCantankerous pensioner Jean always spends Christmas with her son John and his wife Sheila. The mutual dislike between Sheila and Jean constantly bubbles under the surface and is reflected in the presents they give each other. Everything threatens to boil over after an incident involving sixpences in the Christmas pudding (and a toenail in the Bombay mix). Fortunately for Sheila, their daughter Laura comes to the rescue. The play features the same characters as You Won't Know I'm Here - though works perfectly well as a standalone piece.
