Two dudes find their relationship challenged when an ex-girlfriend with a penchant for breaking hearts and feasting on human flesh shows up one holiday eve... Can even the bond that unites two male roomies withstand the coming of... THE CHRISTMAS WITCH?!
Published in Christmas Shorts, a collection of five holiday plays by the author that can be performed individually or together as a complete evening of theatre for a cast of 4-13 performers.
"Amusing, poignant Christmas Shorts is a simple, gentle surprise... The script is loaded with low-key, sweet humor." - Las Vegas Review Journal
Christmas Shorts: 5 Merry Little Comedies was first produced by Naked Angels (Geoffrey Nauffts, artistic director) at Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theatre in December, 2008 as an Angels in Progress workshop. It was directed by Suzanne Agins.
