Absurd Person Singular - November 2018

Meet three couples in their three kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years. The Hopcrofts are in their bright new, gadget filled kitchen, the architect and his wife in their neglected, untidy flat and the bank manager and his wife in their large, slightly modernized, old Victorian style kitchen.
Running like a dark thread through the wild comedy of behind the scenes disasters at Christmas parties is the story of the advance of the Hopcrofts to material prosperity and independence and the decline of the others. In the final stages the little man is well and truly on top, with the others, literally and unnervingly, dancing to his tune.
