The night before Christmas a young married couple frets about the presents they've selected for their friends and family. After they've gone to sleep, the presents come to life to talk about the ups and downs of being a present - the anxiety of being wanted or not, being the dreaded present passed around year after year. A nostaligic short play from 1931. Sweet, endearing, and perfect for all audiences.
