ON THE THIRTEENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
A wild, action-packed Christmas farce. A young woman suddenly finds herself receiving the gifts from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” apparently from an unknown suitor. The play begins on the thirteenth day as she copes with the chaos outside her apartment, as neighbors demand she do something about the noisy birds and pipers and drummers. The woman hatches a plan to shoot the birds and organize the people into an impromptu Christmas parade. Chaos ensues. Cast: 13 — 7f, 3m, 3 non-gender.

Sumi Folz and and her unexpected guest, Andres Solorzano

It’s a comedy about a lonely woman who decides to commit suicide by eating a poinsettia — while broadcasting this on a webcam. Only two problems: She invites a bunch of people, knowing none of them will show up. Except one of them does — an equally lonely co-worker she barely knows. Oh, and it turns out poinsettias really aren’t fatal anyway.
