One by one, they are accused of murder, and one by one they start to die as they succumb to a diabolical avenger. This production is Christie's stage play and is quite different to BBC1's Christmas show.

At the Beauregard Hotel, Bournemouth, in 1953 there is an ensemble of eccentric residential guests who all share one common trait – loneliness. Over a short period, many secrets are discovered. The play is an adaptation by director Chris Ekin-Wood of Terence Rattigan’s provocative, sensitive play that followed the film version giving an emotional evening where four of these guests bared their innermost secrets – and changed each other’s lives forever. Other guests too were also left exposed. The original play had two stars portraying four roles. In this version the four roles were played by different actors working on a multiple set that incorporated Stage One’s theatre features – it promised to be an exciting project.

When Richard Willey, MP, plans to spend the evening with Jane, secretary to the Leader of the Opposition, things go disastrously wrong - beginning with the discovery of a "body" trapped in the hotel's only unreliable window. Desperately trying to get out of a potentially headline-making situation, Richard calls for his PPS, George. However, with a conniving waiter, a suspicious hotel manager, an alert private detective, an angry wife, a furious husband, a bungling secretary, an unconscious nurse and a dead body to deal with, this is not the romantic evening Richard had planned.

Steel Magnolias is a comedy–drama play about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. It is written by Robert Harling, based on his experience with the death of his sister.

Michael's and Roma's patience is further tried by the arrival of their neighbours, the indomitable Mrs Hinson, who brings her own brand of party entertainment in the form of the domestic squabbles of her son and daughter-in-law.

When an unexpected passion is given full rein Henry realises that the door he's just flung open should have remained tightly shut. This is an intriguing play, full of unexpected happenings.

The Captain's wife is dead, and he is often away, and runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives -- including the Captain's. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love, even though Georg is already engaged to a Baroness and Maria is still a postulant. The romance makes them both start questioning the decisions they have made...

The classic story: 4 ghosts visit the miserly businessman Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve. The apparition of Scrooge's business partner Marley, the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas As Yet To Come guide Scrooge along his loveless present and bleak future. The vision of his own headstone and the fact that no one will mourn his death force Scrooge to see the error of his "Bah! Humbug!" attitude towards both life and Christmas.
The primary recipients of Scrooge's moral rebirth are his poor clerk Bob Cratchit and his family, especially the crippled boy Tiny Tim. Scrooge awakens from his illusions and delivers a turkey to the Cratchit household, gives Bob a raise and reconciles with his nephew.
