Santa Comes to The King David
Short Play, Dramatic Comedy / 1m, 3f
“Overwhelmingly loved by our audiences! 4 X'MAS is a perfect balance between powerful, thought provoking drama and light-hearted comedy!” - Nick Charles and Julie Incorvina, Owners, Stage Door Repertory Theatre, Anaheim, CA. Published in 4 X'MAS, a collection of Holiday one-acts.
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.
