Isaac Oliver’s Lonely Christmas

Friday, December 8 & Saturday, December 9 @ 8PM


Written & Performed by Isaac Oliver
Directed by Jason Eagan 
with Special Guests To Be Announced


Trim the tree, hang the stockings and sip the homewine — your favorite fearful-festive holiday special is back! Ring out this absolutely terrible year cuddled up with new stories, old songs and a late-night visitor who only travels, never hosts. Featuring special guests, seasonal eczema and a healthy dash of holly-jolly-melancholy. We’ll have to muddle through somehow!

“A rare talent who manages to deftly combine raunchiness, intelligence, hilarity, and heart. Brilliantly observant, funny, and wry.” – The New Yorker
