RECOGNITION / AWARDS

Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Four heart-warming Christmas plays and one monologue play for your Holiday 2012 audiences!

THE OFFICE PARTY (2m, 1f) - Bill and Joyce meet at a holiday office party, rekindling a love affair that leads to Joyce’s living room and the possible early arrival of Richard, the third side of an unresolved triangle.

SANTA’S CLARA (2m, 1f) - In the shadows of a Hell’s Kitchen bottle redemption center, a fired department store Santa meets a teenage runaway toting a shopping cart of empties and a cynical heart full of nightmare-shrouded sugar plum memories. But tonight, more than bottles may get redeemed.

THE FIRST NOEL (1f) - A homeless and hungry Noel returns to the site of her childhood, now a Chinese take-out, but will her journey get her the handout she wants, or the nurturing she needs?

BALLS (4f, 1m) - A box of very eccentric, multi-colored holiday ornaments discover just how fragile their existence really is.

SANTA COMES TO THE KING DAVID (3f, 1m) - A distraught woman saves what she thinks is a bridge leaper in a Santa suit, discovering instead a story of unfulfilled dreams, unconditional devotion, a Kris Kringle who makes annual visits to a Jewish nursing home, and the crazy possibility that two broken hearts can indeed make one whole.

"As an audience member, I LOVED IT. The creativity, the reality, the understandable, and the unfathomable all flow from the remarkable mind of Mr. Grant. As a retired literature teacher, I was delighted to witness so touching a production." - Bill Raabe, Fountain Valley, California

4 X'MAS first appeared in its entirety at the Jewel Box Stage of The Workshop Theatre, New York City, in December 2007.

I had the honor of creating Green-Ball in George Cameron's Grant, "Balls", in the first of production "4 X-mas" in New York City a few years back. I love all of Mr. Grant's work, but there was something about the charm, the warmth, and the humor of this particular piece.  The audiences couldn't get enough of the entire evening.  Many friends reached out to tell me which one of the "4 X-mas" plays they enjoyed and why.  For me, the experience enhanced my holiday after a very difficult year.  I'll make the prediction that "4 X-mas" will become a holiday classic.  Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of its illustrious history.
