Four veteran improvisers (J Chachula, Nancy Pekar, Dan Sipp and Jenny Spencer) create scenes exploring relationships, tradition and family dynamics during the holiday season.
After Lori attempts suicide, leaving her parents shocked and her sisters feeling betrayed, the Murdoch family struggles to regain their trust for one another. As the family attempts to reunite, their bonds are tested by guilt, anxiety, and confusion. A drama in three acts, LEAVES reveals the Murdoch’s first step in their journey towards recovery.
Local filmmaker Jeffrey Moore and theatre director Rachel Klem team up to present this interactive, holiday entertainment. Set in West Durham, A Trailer Park Christmas follows the Dodson/ Hussey family as they grapple with crazy neighbors, ghosts, fruitcakes and a holiday tornado.
A letter from Loraine Dodson- Whispering Pines Trailer Park, West Durham: “Dear Friends- Please join our family for holiday festivities at our trailer, row M, lot 16. There will be snacks, a little karaoke, and a lot of love as we celebrate the season together. No need to bring anything except yourselves, RSVP if you’re coming. See you soon! Love, Loraine.”
