In this comedy, Andy Gorski (Stephen Blackwell) has a loving mother (Jan Cartwright), a very special brother (Richard Payton), a crabby Catholic father (Henry Nelson) and an atheist Jewish fiancée (Angela Kay Miller). When he brings his fiancée home for Christmas, it incites an entertaining, domestic brawl about religious differences. But just when tempers begin to flare, miracles begin to occur.
Diane Hill, Two Muses co-founder said "it's an unusual script for the holidays. It's got all the great one-liners of a hilarious comedy, it's got the warmth of Frank Capra family movie, and it's got a twist that the audience won't see coming, but they will definitely leave the theater talking about." Director and Two Muses Co-Founder Barbie Weisserman said "I wanted to direct this play not only because it's interdenominational, but because when I read it, it made me laugh; it made me cry; and it gave me tingles all at the same time. And now as we're rehearsing it, this cast is really breathing life into the characters and believable family dynamics, and it's making me laugh, cry and get tingles all over again."
