Encore Theatre Company, 6978 Lebanon Road
Mt. Juliet, TN 37122

It’s Christmas Eve, and a young newspaper reporter on the brink of being fired has been assigned a last-chance story about a typical family Christmas – his family’s Christmas. He goes home to his recently widowed mother, his crazy uncle, his eccentric grandmother, and his battling siblings and their neurotic spouses, who provide no shortage of material.

The question is, will the magic of Christmas bring this family back together?
