Chicago playwrights and composers explore the “other side” of Christmas. Celebrate the season of giving with the new classic, Holiday Stories. 

In this world premiere, eight interwoven plays present unique perspectives on the holidays, from Christmas Eve in a homeless shelter to airport travel delays.   By focusing on characters who have been, for various reasons, abandoned by the holidays, these plays affirm the season in their search for a more personal, meaningful, and inclusive spirit of Christmas.
