About the play:It is 6pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-aleck teenagers, to nosy neighbors, and bickering adults - the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop and we soon wonder who is holding who hostage?! With outrageous characters, laugh-a-minute-dialogue, and a surprise, heart-felt ending - Mr. Franco has created a comic treasure that is sure to leave your audience in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
