Dorchester Arts’ Associate Theatre Group, Somerleigh Players guarantee festive fun with Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy, Season’s Greetings – in the author’s own words  “a play about love and about how unfair it is. And success and failure. And jealousy and self-deception. And greed and envy and lust and gluttony. Just an average family Christmas”.

You are invited to enjoy our performance from sofas practically on the stage! A limited number of these sofas will be available at £15 per head (maximum two on a sofa, sold in groups of two), which includes chocolates and festive bites to enjoy as the play unfolds. It’s up to you if you sit in splendid isolation or cosy up as a couple to enjoy the hilarity. All sofa sitters must be 16+.

Eight-seater tables at £120 include wine and festive bites before the show and post-show chat with members of the company. Bring your friends and make a party of it!

Spaces are limited, so do book early if you want the best seats in the house.

Normal seating will also be available.

We are very excited to announce, thanks to the magnificent generosity of Fordington Gin, that there will be a Gin Bar in the auditorium serving gin of course, and festive cocktails to fill your evening with Christmas Cheer.

Profits from this performance will support the work of Dorchester Arts and the Dorchester Maltings project. contribute to the Maltings Theatre project.
