ABOUT THE PLAYS:
In "Returned Toy Syndrome", a monologue by Len Fonte, a man's reminisces about a childhood Christmas gone awry. In the "Twas the Christmas Eve 9:02 to Soulmateville" by Donna Stuccio, sleepy and confused Charlotte finds herself on a train headed in an unexpected direction. In "The Gift" by Amy Doherty, it is the day after Christmas and all is not going well for Michael and Emma. An unexpected visitor arrives with a present that may -or may not- change everything. In "He Was a Bass", a monologue by Kathy Kramer, Margaret, a woman of generous proportions, reveals a secret and a small miracle from her Christmas past. In "On the Way To Bethlehem" by Richard Harris, a lost angel on way to Bethlehem upsets an American couple's usual Christmas plans. It's Christmas eve in "Manger House" by Joel Potash, there is a knock on the door at a small hospice. Two strangers and their child dying of AIDS need refuge. But Angela and Lucy are not at all prepared to accommodate the desperate family. In a "Coal Mine Christmas" by Peter Moller, Harlon Driscoll is spending his Christmas trapped at the bottom of a coal mine. There are lots of family members up-top who want to welcome him home, but he's not so sure he wouldn't prefer to stay underground.
