"The Man In The Red Suit" Synopsis (Feature)

A devilishly dark Christmas play. It is Christmas Eve, the worst Christmas Eve of Perry Roussel’s life. With his Denver area cabin snowed in, and his family asleep upstairs, Perry encounters two truly mysterious yet familiar strangers who show up unexpectedly. This visit results in a heated metaphysical and spiritual debate between Perry and two legendary figures in history who have completely polar opposite reputations. At one end of the spectrum Perry debates with Santa Claus about the existence of that most beloved figure of the Winter Holidays, and at the other end Perry defies Satan, the most feared adversary in Christianity.

"The Cat & Squirrel Dialogues" (Opener)

A modern day Aesop’s Fable about a cat and his buddy, who happens to be a squirrel. Tom Cat and Redd Squirrel have a very unusual relationship. They are the odd couple of the animal kingdom. Tom doesn’t pussyfoot around when it comes to his feelings about the Human race. Redd, however, sees the promise in Humanity, and tries to convince Tom to see them differently. With visits from their friends, Goldie Finch, Maury Dove, and Little Kitty, this play delves into a harsh and humorous look at Humanity through the diverse eyes of non-Humans.
