December 7 – January 6, 2013 (In the Studio Theatre)
A heartwarming play where a chance encounter opens the door for an unlikely holiday romance.
Life has left forty-year-old Eve Lawson bitter and cynical. She refutes not only the existence of God and true love but also any belief in America’s favorite folk hero, Santa Claus. When her car slides off an icy road on Christmas Eve, she finds herself seeking shelter at the home of Simon Peter Whitaker, woodcarver and Christmas expert nonpareil. Simon wholeheartedly embraces the magic of the season and everything it entails, including belief in the “jolly old elf”.
As the night unfolds, Simon and Eve find themselves clashing time and time again, sharing stories they’ve never shared, and ultimately rediscovering the warmest feeling in the world – the magic of Christmas.
Not intended for young children.
