The plot centers on Caroline Christmas (Nathalie Cox), a control freak who desires nothing more than a perfect Christmas with her sisters at her lavish country manor to atone for the fact that their father abandoned the family on December 25th many years ago. When on Christmas Eve their long-lost father arrives at their doorstep with his new girlfriend, chaos ensues. Through a series of mishaps and misunderstandings, Caroline uncovers a long-buried family secret. Can the family still celebrate Christmas together after all?

David also recently appeared in the new documentary "8 Weeks to 6 Minutes", a compelling look at the Stand-Up Comedy program at TOA.


Theatre of Arts congratulates David on this exciting and no doubt hilarious new project!
