    A warm and embracing Christmas play that shows us what we really value - and as always, it's our friendships. The families we choose. Perfect for the holiday season. Nice work, O'Grady!

    Dental floss! Beans! Chinese take-out! All these items make one heck of a Christmas story. At its heart, a heartwarming story about the families we choose, and the friendships we nurture. A beautiful play for the holiday season or anytime. Read it, produce it!

    O'Grady neatly captures the struggle of creating your own independence but still figuring out what traditions are important to you as a person. Perfect for anyone with a found family and a touch of cynicism who just can't shake the Christmas cheer.
