    Bublitz balances theatricality and goofiness with heartfelt connection between her characters in this fun holiday piece. It would make a great addition to short holiday festivals!

    A fun twist on the Grinch tale for a modern generation. This play isn't satisfied to just say "they lived happily ever after" and instead engages with the weird dichotomy between what Christmas is meant to represent and what it is.

    Go Gretchen! I love this bold Holiday play
    that is not very nice and has mean things to say
    about happy sheep-families eating meat/buying plastic.
    Quick! Read this today, it is fun and fantastic!
