Ongoing Holiday Meshugas
Holiday: (noun) hol.i.day; legal day off, holy day, same as vacation.

TASN's 2013 production of Holiday Meshugas was so successful that we were inspired to pursue some Ongoing Holiday Meshugas and present our 2014 seasonal production.
These are stories born from the hopes, dreams, memories and expectations that come with the winter holidays. From sublime grace to the most absurdly funny, these pieces run the full gamut of holiday emotions. Some are born from memory; others have sprung from the writers' imaginations.
Performed as solo acts, each tale takes us inside the heart of an individual as he or she navigates the turbulence of holiday cheer. We explore the deeply sentimental and the more jaded and ironic aspects of how we cope during the holidays. These divergent accounts combine to remind us that there is a story behind every expression we encounter during the season of good cheer, no matter on the street, in the Mall, or in our living rooms. Or perhaps even in historic Aremethea.
Share with us this chance to honor the elephant in the room as we approach the holidays. These monologues are testimony to the deep currents that rise to the surface in every individual at holiday time, which we all try to glaze over for fear of being the buzz kill in the room.
