    A play for Thanksgiving or for the holidays!

    About the play: Nora has posted an invitation to all of her lonely neighbors and a group appears! All they have to do is tear off a number and show up at one o’clock. All six numbers are taken, but who exactly will the guests be? Poor Nora had not planned on a grouch who doesn’t like being around lots of people, a glutton who is about to eat them out of house and home, a flirt who only has eyes for Nora’s husband, and a kleptomaniac who steals everything that isn’t nailed down. At least the last two guests seem normal – two procrastinating sisters, about to enjoy turkey on the Big Day for the first time ever! That is, only if Nora can find the turkey.

    Here’s what they’re saying about the show:

    • “Merry Christmas / Happy Thanksgiving” was the final show in our holiday production and it brought down the house. What great characters! -H. Reynolds
