White People Christmas ~ December 2016

White People Christmas by Ernest Thompson

Opening in Boise, Idaho on December 8 and running through December 18, this hilarious satire on all things racist, homophobic and elitist will make you cringe, laugh and cry, sometimes all at once.

A family of clinical dysfunctionals gathers at Grandmother’s house to mope through the holiday, only to have their status quo severely upended by the arrival of good St. Nick who turns out to be — wouldn’t you know it? — black. But, in the true spirit of Christmas miracles, he has a gift for each of his flabbergasted hosts and for us, too, an invitation to look beyond our traditional take on greed, contempt and a misplaced superiority complex and to dig under the wrappings for greater truths and better attitudes; the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

Written by Ernest Thompson, directed by April Matson, and starring Tim Northern, Lance Thompson, Julia Bennett, Nyce Kitay, Chance Fuerstinger and Krystal Moore. For more information and to buy tickets, click here.
