This double bill of irreverent, adult-oriented holiday plays from two award-winning playwrights -- Matt Pelfrey's The Reason for the Season and Anthony Neilson's The Night Before Christmas -- delivers a foul-mouthed, edgy, feel-good time. Whether dealing with kidnapped elves, a bad-mannered Santa Claus or some wretched souls in need of a good dose of Christmas cheer, both of Xmas Unplugged's short plays set their sights on big laughs. Come find out why the Los Angeles Times hailed The Night Before Christmas as an "engaging balance of edginess, social commentary and hard-won optimism." Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
By David Mamet
Directed By Tamara Fisch
When it comes to race is justice blind?
In this complex, complicated world acknowledging prejudice is an ugly venture into discomfort. In Race, three lawyers (two black, one white) take on a case that gets under the skin and turns into a minefield of deep divisions, resentments and bigotry. Mamet’s rapid-fire dialogue, gripping plot and blunt language, thoroughly stripped of polite social convention and rife with provocative humor, spotlights how discrimination is stained with guilt and shame. Playwright David Mamet is a Pulitzer Prize-winning and Academy Award-nominated writer.
