It’s Christmas Eve and Dougal has travelled from
Northampton to New York for his father’s wedding. At JFK Airport he’s greeted by Robyn. Tomorrow her sister becomes his stepmother and Robyn’s dreading it. Dougal can’t wait.
Thrown together for a wild weekend in the city that never sleeps, their adventure becomes a musical whirlwind of confession, frustration and excess. Will these two endearing misfits provide the ultimate test for the theory that opposites always attract?
Premiered at The Wolsey Ipswich and The Royal & Derngate Northampton in 2019.
★★★★ "a quirky, quick-witted and touching musical miracle."
