Everyone creates their own coping strategies or rules for living

But what happens when an extended family gathers in the kitchen for a traditional Christmas and they each follow those rules?


As long-held mechanisms for survival are laid bare, even Mum - who's been preparing this lunch since last January - becomes embroiled

Time-honoured rivalries and resentments will out

Accusations will fly

Relationships will deconstruct

But will the Rules take over?

In this theatrically playful, dark comedy there's really no place to hide

Premiered at the UK's National Theatre in March 2015
