12 Dates of Christmas
Not your standard holiday fare, Ginna Hoben’s hilarious 1-woman play follows Mary, whose life is upended at Thanksgiving when she sees her fiancé kissing another woman on national TV, launching a year-long quest to regain emotional balance.
Celebrate the return of the incomparable Tamiko Robinson Steele to the Tennessee Women’s Theater Project holiday production, The Twelve Dates of Christmas!
Ginna Hoben’s side-splitting one-woman play opens with Mary, visiting her family at home in Ohio for Thanksgiving. She switches on the Macy’s Parade and spots her fiancé back in New York kissing another woman on national TV! We follow Mary’s year-long stumble back into the dating world, as romance lurches from weird and creepy to absurd and comical. Finally, in an unexpected encounter, Mary discovers a new perspective on life and love. Salty Language Alert: because of adult language, this show is not recommended for small children.
