THE FLIGHT BEFORE XMAS
Written by Maggie Lee
Directed by Amy Poisson
With all the stress of the holidays, spending Christmas Eve stranded in an airport with a bunch of strangers is the last thing anyone needs! With endless delays, kids shuttling between stepfamilies, a rogue cat on the loose, an important business deal at stake, and missing your grandson’s first Christmas morning, the holiday spirit can disappear quicker than your lost luggage. But sometimes, all you need is to be a little late in order to truly appreciate what you’re rushing toward. The Flight Before Xmas is a heartwarming new holiday show about finding your way home and the family we discover for ourselves.
CHRISTMASTOWN: A HOLIDAY NOIR
Written by Wayne Rawley
Directed by Kelly Kitchens
In this film noir-inspired holiday thrilller by Seattle playwright Wayne Rawley, hard-boiled detective Nick Holiday investigates some un-holiday-like shenanigans taking place in Christmastown that sends him on a search for the truth about Big Red. Add a glamorous elf, a used-Christmas-tree salesman, a muckraking reporter, and a quick-thinking cab driver, and you’ve got what the Seattle Times calls “best new holiday romp of the year!”
