Christmas Gift Guide
‘Tis the season to buy, buy, buy, and we’re throwing our hat into the ring.
We think, however, that our new season is packed full of plays that deliver the perfect antidote to rampant consumerism. Each play looks at a different struggle for justice. And if that’s not in the Christmas spirit (THINK JESUS) well, we don’t know what is. With no further ado, welcome to our Christmas Gift Guide to Season 2015:
