Homo for Christmas

10-MINUTE: Ashley has brought her new girlfriend, Skyler, home for Christmas (Skyler's Jewish, but we're not going to talk it about it) to meet her family—who turn out to be exceptionally bad at adapting to change.

"The funniest and best directed is "Homo for Christmas" written by John Bavoso... This is a total laugh fest! Ignorance of the facts doesn’t seem to matter in some circles these days, but it does have an unusual reaction in most family gatherings. Will the parents and grandmother accept the new partner of their beloved child? In this farcical production of miswords and misunderstandings, this family takes the prize." — NoHoArtsDistrict.com

Homo for Christmas

    With so many alternative Christmas festivals around, it’s no wonder this is finding a home. In the best spirit of Christmas, it celebrates love and denial which are not strangers at Christmas. It could be a self-help book about how to come out on Christmas Day. Complete with laughter and guts.

    Wonderfully funny family dynamics! Homo for Christmas is a perfect laugh-out-loud holiday comedy! Bavoso has a great sense of the visual too!

    There is an astonishing amount of the absurd in this comedy that one can only conclude that it comes from a place of truth. Bavoso creates a laugh almost every other line in this play while still creating a poignant commentary on denial in families and awkward conversations at those holiday get-togethers.
