Description Claire Haywood packs her action into just over 24 hours: from the evening before Christmas until late on Christmas night...ultimately, this is a play about the quite different strategies by which each member of a family negotiates survival...she queries, for example, the nature of sibling relationships; she probes the fear of inherited weakness; she explores the impact of the outsider on family structure.
