This holiday farce based on O'Henry's "Gift of the Magi" is set in a 1940s radio station as a live on-air broadcast. Disgruntled actors, an inebriated Shakespearean prima donna, and a frantic stage manager make this classic tale of holiday love and generosity a zany adventure that's sure to please audiences of all ages.
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Della/Lauren - female 20-30s, young, lovely and innocent ingenue (or not)
