Topher Payne, Atlanta's "best local playwright" (Creative Loafing, The GA Voice), sets this raucous satire in 1950s Washington, D.C., where a State Department official and his secretary -- both gay and both locked firmly in the closet -- have been tasked with ferreting out homosexuals in the department. To avoid detection, they've come up with what seems like the Perfect Arrangement: they've married each others' partners. But their sitcom-like situation may come crashing down around them when an employee discovers their deception. The play was originally developed at The Process Theatre and now returns after a hit run at D.C.'s Source Festival and winning the 2014 Osborn New Play Award from the American Theatre Critics Association.

The children at the evening performance did such a wonderful job! My 6.5 year old son and his friend absolutely loved the performers of various ages singing Christmas carols and acting. And the peak of the night was when Santa Claus stepped on to the stage. He was witty, jolly and very real looking. I would highly recommend seeing this show if you have children between ages 4 and 8.
