The Christmas Spirit

The Christmas Spirit
written by Frederick Stroppel
produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
 
 Julia Dowling has an unexpected visitor who intends to escort her off to the afterlife. Infusing comedy into the classic Death Takes a Holiday, The Christmas Spirit is set in contemporary Long Island. Julia persuades Death to give her one more day to enjoy Christmas and invites him to be her guest at a festive party. The next day the house fills with bickering relatives, friends, the local priest -- and Death, masquerading as a human, singing carols and drinking eggnog. Moments of high farce, drama and even romance arise as holiday fantasies collide with a not-so-merry reality.
*-Rated PG for mild language.
