The year is 1937. Swansong Pictures are halfway through filming ‘Who Killed Santa Claus?’
They have been down to Somerset to film the outdoor scenes, and are now in the process of adding the interior shots.
Unfortunately, some of the action sequences have not come out at all well and need to be re-enacted tonight.
The actors are all desperate to make quite sure that this film succeeds, as none of them were paid on the last film. When Lewis Long - the critic who slated their last production in his column - turns up, it throws the whole Company into a state of high tension and panic.
To make matters even worse, there is discontent amongst certain members of the Company, who feel that they are not getting the parts that they deserve.
Tonight, however, will be their lucky night.
For they will all get just what they deserve!
