A quirky Christmas play. 

Published by Stagescripts Ltd. 


It's Not the Same Without Norman

It's the Christmas season and Gillian is missing her errant husband Norman, who has walked out on her without explanation.  Prone to fantasies, she transforms her bedroom into a stable, casts her husband as a shepherd, Norman's girlfriend, Linda as a wise woman, and uses Joseph as the arbitrator to oversee this imaginary get-together. Although there are arguments, back stabbings and recriminations the meeting ends with a supposed reconciliation in sight.  However, when Gillian's husband unexpectedly telephones the next day, her fantasies set to work once more.  The play ends with her grasp on reality being further questioned.
