This full length comedy is set in Parklands Residential Home for the Elderly.  A new resident, Nicholas comes to the home.  Matron thinks he is a bit senile but some of the other residents, Major, Dottie and Florrie befriend him.  Nicholas thinks he is really Santa Claus and is desperate to get home as Christmas is approaching.  

The residents set about trying to help him escape from the home.  They try various hilarious ways of trying to get him out of the home in time, including antics with a sacred rat borrowed from the local Indian shopkeeper. 

Florrie     You’re him, aren’t you?  I knew it! I just knew I had seen you before.  I thought you looked familiar.  The rosy cheeks, the white beard.  The bulbous nose – oh sorry.  Like on Christmas cards.
   
Major    Florrie, don’t be so rude.  I would have thought that your private school education would have taught you better.
