STAGEStheatre presents Holiday Visitations, a collection of one acts that offer a good laugh and toasty Christmas feel-good cheer.
Peace on Planet Earth introduces the Mooneys from Canada--er...yeah, Canada...eh? When they make a surprise visit on their son away at college the party has only just begun. Son Jack has his hands full trying to keep Mom and Dad, Aurora and Cosmo, in the dark about live-in girlfriend, Jill, while little sis', Haley, seems to have her own designs on Jack's slacker buddy, Bob. But Mom and Dad spring the biggest surprise of all when they come up with a radical solution to improve Jack's study environment. Save some room for the Torkloaf 'cause where the Mooneys come from they celebrate Christmas a little differently than the rest of us.
The Gift centers on Janie, a vegan, who chokes on a piece of zucchini and falls into a deep vegetative state. Richard, her husband, must make the choice whether or not to end her life. Janie haunts Richard's waking dreams and nightmares, as he comes to terms with his choice. Four months later, he comes out of his cocoon to visit an old friend's art exhibit, which takes place in the same bathroom where he met Janie nearly fifteen years before.
