Rules for Living archiveEveryone creates their own coping strategies or rules for living. But what happens when an extended family gathers in the kitchen for a traditional Christmas and they each follow those rules, rigidly? As long-held mechanisms for survival are laid bare, even Mum, who's been preparing this lunch since last January, becomes embroiled. Long-held rivalries and resentments will out. Accusations fly, relationships deconstruct, the rules take over.


Deborah Findlay, Miles Jupp, Stephen Mangan, Maggie Service, Claudie Blakley, John Rogan, Daisy Waterstone
