"Marisa's writing reminds me of A.R. Gurney on steroids."
- Gordon Clapp (Greg Medavoy, NYPD Blue


Using O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi," a short story set in Victorian times, this modern adaptation updates the tale of love and sacrifice to the modern day. O. Henry wrote about disadvantaged young people living in New York City. In this version, Lucia and Rocky are a young married couple living in the city who love each other very much though they have different ideas of what to spend money on for this Christmas. Rocky would like to go cross country on his motorcycle and Lucia wants to save for the down payment on a house. When a baby comes into the picture, everything changes. This is a play celebrating love and sacrifice. Told with heart and humor, this play is a real holiday treat.
