Rules for Living is a dark comedy about family dysfunction and societal norms. Playwright Sam Holfcroft explores coping with family dynamics and social constructs that limit behaviors through cognitive therapy. The play follows a family preparing for Christmas lunch; tensions begin to rise as they deal with family issues. Each movement, gesture, or voice is dictated over by the play’s set of “rules,” which the actors must follow to function correctly in Holcroft’s world.
Rules for Living is presented by arrangement with Casarotto Ramsay & Associates, London.
