Regional Premiere

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of How I Learned to Drive and Baltimore Waltz brings us a delicately nuanced story about a family who drives to Grandma's one Christmas Eve and finds their lives changed forever. With storytelling sharp as December air, lovely as a lighted tree and intricately original as a snowflake, this "puppet play for grown ups" slides into our psyches and helps discover what family is really about.
