The Jensen family is hoping to escape the mayhem and misery of everyday Texas life with a holiday vacation in the Colorado Mountains. Unfortunately, they have no such luck. A deluded mother, her three rowdy sons, her morose daughter, her daughter's "roommate" and her daughter-in-law, the aging Rodeo Queen, are stuck together for the hell-idays. Watch this odd bunch struggle to find the true meaning of Christmas and accept that family is family -- whether they like it or not. Learn More

In December 1940, two Kentuckians meet cute on a very special train heading east bound for New York. Raleigh is a soldier facing medical discharge (he’s an epileptic) who aspires to become a writer; May has deeply religious feelings and wants to be a missionary. They’re two very different people, but as the story of Arlene Hutton’s 1999 play unfolds, the audience will witness Raleigh and May’s growing mutual attraction over the course of a couple of years in this unusual love story, which Hutton claims she loosely based on the romance between her own parents.
Hutton is a remarkably prolific playwright whose other works include Women@Work, Lights Up!, Corbin, Kentucky, As It Is in Heaven, Academia and much more.
The show runs approximately one hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
