Set at 5.53pm on Christmas Eve, a couple is waiting for friends and family and festivities to start.

Once again Hampstead have put on another great play on their downstairs stage. These plays for me are better than the ones performed upstairs. Elephants is about a family who invite a couple over for Xmas where thins don't go quite Christmasy as it should. The characters all had depth to them with great tension shown between the two younger female leads. A fantastic set, dark humour, good music and even a little kitten make this play a five star treat.
