The Group Rep Presents HOLIDAY TRADITIONS AND TRAPPINGS

For the first time in its 46-year history, the Group Rep presents HOLIDAY TRADITIONS AND TRAPPINGS, a collection of new short plays and stories that explore the humor and challenges in surviving the holidays (during non-pandemic times). These little portraits of humanity focus on romance, traditions, gift-giving and tiny miracles. The on demand holiday event is available on the Group Rep's Virtual Stage through Friday, 1/1/2021 at 12:00 midnight.

All eight plays have been written by Group Rep members with cast size for each play ranging from 1-4 actors; featuring 19 actors in all. Some of the shows have been filmed on the Group Rep stage with safe Covid protocols adhered to; others have been video captured. The event is produced by Kathleen Delaney and Brooklyn Sample for the Group Rep. Music is by Marc Antonio Pritchett. Video capture and assembly is by Doug Engalla.
