Home for the Holidays, by the writer of the OCTA awarded comedy, Jake’s Dilemma, is a dramatic comedy set in Brooklyn, New York. The story centers around the Kelly family, and brothers Brad and Jim. Sullen older brother, Brad, has not recovered from the murder of his father seventeen years earlier and has vowed never to get over it until he sees dad standing in the middle of the dining room on Christmas Day. Family discord erupts as naïve young brother, Jim, announces his plan to bring a mysterious and potentially dangerous homeless man to Christmas dinner. The play focuses on the real-world problems of homeless people in the United States and the strength of the family unit. Expect no dry eye at the conclusion.
