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

    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.

    Oh man, poor Ashley! She's just hoping the family will be cool, but — That's not gonna happen. Bavoso hits the holidays on the head, when our emotional lives can feel trapped in a Venn diagram like this one, where your chosen family and your biological family... intersect. There's lots of fun farce and kooky comedy as these disparate worlds collide. Also, I want a full-length with "Grandma" because she is my everything. Happy Holidays!
