An Awkward Family Christmas

"an infectious sense of fun." - A Criminal Christmas, 2011, NZ HERALD:
"One of Auckland's slickest young companies" - Short + Sweet Festival, 2011, NZ HERALD

Yuletide is here... get ready to cringe! Join the extended Potts-Chambers family’s awfully awkward Christmas shindig.

You think your Christmas is hard? Try sharing it with Aryan twins, a pottery making lesbian life partner, a brain damaged supermodel and a perpetually unloved stoner son. Add to the mix a meal of orange, cauliflower and spark plugs… it’s gonna get incredibly awkward.

Start your silly season off with a bang and be convinced your family is actually normal over Christmas!*
