Four heart-warming Christmas plays and one monologue play for your Holiday 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.
“OVERWHELMINGLY LOVED BY OUR AUDIENCES! A perfect balance between powerful, thought provoking drama and light-hearted comedy!” -Nick Charles and Julie Incorvina, Owners, Stage Door Repertory Theatre, Anaheim, CA
"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
