All Claire wants is the perfect Christmas. She’s hired famous gourmet chef, Vilma Hasenpfeffer, to prepare her famous Hasenpfeffer Hollandaise Sauce for her dinner guests. Unfortunately, the chef is late, the guests are early and there are burglars loose in the neighborhood. To top it all off, Claire’s father has been hit on the head and thinks he’s the leading man in all of the West End theatre productions of the past 30 years! Claire and her brother try to keep it all together as situations continue to unravel in this sidesplitting British farce reminiscent of Arsenic and Old Lace. But once the mayhem dies down, the true Christmas spirit shines bright.
