Show Description

It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed has gathered his three adult sons to celebrate with matching pajamas, trash-talking, and Chinese takeout. But when a question they can’t answer interrupts their holiday cheer, they are forced to confront their own identities. Obie Award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee takes a hilariously ruthless look at the classic American father-son drama.

This is one white Christmas like you’ve never seen before.

The New York Times has named Obie Award winner Young Jean Lee (Church and We're Gonna Die both at The Public) "the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation."
