Winner at the 2002 Florida Repertory Congress of Jewellers Play Series. In this off-beat, dark comedy Julia Dowling has an unexpected visitor on Christmas Eve, whose job is to escort her to the afterlife. Julia persuades her visitor to hold off for one day and invites him and his other “passenger” to the family party the next day. This is an amusing yet thought-provoking mixture of Death Takes a Holiday and a typical family festive get-together, complete with bickering relatives, an unsure priest and a budding romance. Recommended for age 14 and up. Mature themes. Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., New York
