It’s Christmas Eve and Dougal has travelled from Northampton to New York for his father’s wedding. At JFK Airport he’s greeted by Robin. Tomorrow her sister becomes his stepmother and Robin’s dreading it. Dougal can’t wait.
Thrown together for a wild weekend in the city that never sleeps, their adventure becomes a musical whirlwind of confession, frustration and excess. Will these two endearing misfits provide the ultimate test for the theory that opposites always attract?
This brand new romantic comedy is filled with heart-warming and hilarious songs from writers Jim Barne and Kit Buchan, winners of the 2018 MTI Stiles + Drewe Mentorship Award, celebrating the very best of emerging British song‑writing talent.
