After the wild success of 2005's original Baby Jesus One-Act Jubilee (featuring new short plays by Young Jean Lee, Thomas Bradshaw, and many others), The Brick is proud to revive this incipient tradition with a brand-new evening of original holiday-themed ten-minute plays!

As with the previous installment, this edition of the Jubilee will be divided into two separate programs of six plays each, that can be seen together or separately. This year's programs consist of:
MARYS
Thursdays & Saturdays at 7pm
Fridays at 9pm


THE BABY JESUS CONVERSATION
by Jason Craig, directed by Michael Gardner

A call to childhood and remembrances of what the Christmas season meant for our two nostalgic storytellers. Full of wit and piss, this little yuletide yarn summons the miracles that only children maintain surrounding the mystery of the Baby Jesus and his powers.

A BENDER FAMILY CHRISTMAS
by Carolyn Raship, directed by Daniel McKleinfeld

Ghosts, mayhem & midwestern home cooking! Join the Bloody Benders of Kansas for some holiday family fun (from which you may never escape!).

ACTION JESUS
by Qui Nguyen, directed by Michael Lew

The story of Baby Jesus… with fights!

A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by Jason Grote, directed by Shannon Sindelar

Seven years have passed since Marley's Christmas death, and Scrooge has not changed a bit. But, on this particular Christmas, the shrimp boats lower their nets. Marley pushes his face against hers. She screams and flees back to Scrooge; on her cheek stands out in red the marks of two rows of teeth.

MARSHMALLOW WORLD
by Marc Spitz, directed by Ian W. Hill

In a 12 step-style meeting full of people with sonic as opposed to substance related problems, a Jew from a very conservative family tries to cure his addiction to Christmas music.

HOLLOW HALLOW
by Eric Sanders, directed by Jake Witlen

Far away from the comforts of home and family, three American soldiers in Iraq slog through Christmas Eve guarding PUCs at a detainee camp.  Who ever said "No blood, no foul?"

JOSEPHS
Thursdays & Saturdays at 9pm
Fridays at 7pm


UNCOMPLICATED
by Bob Saietta, directed by Buddy Peoples
On Christmas Eve morn', a love triangle comes unwound as a young man breaks into his former apartment only to find his ex in the arms of another woman. UNCOMPLICATED is a bawdy farce of cross-dressing, sexual hijinks, and identity.

THE REVELLERS
by Aaron Mack Schloff, directed by Jeff Lewonczyk
They *will* celebrate the season. No rest, no peace

MOTHER MARY COME TO ME
by Eric Bland, directed by Scott Eckert
Mary did not birth Jesus. Sheila did. But Sheila died and Jesus needs a mother. And Joseph needs a lover. And Mary needs things too.

AND THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS PASSED
by Jakob Holder, directed by David Barth
It’s a typical family Christmas: Mom’s addressing cards, Connie’s dreaming of snow, and Ryan’s patiently awaiting Santa’s arrival. Only, Connie’s sweating like crazy, Ryan’s locked and loaded, Mom won’t listen to anyone but Dad, and Dad is completely two-dimensional.

TRAYF
by Matthew Freeman, directed by Kyle Ancowitz
A giant lobster, who has recently converted to Judaism, celebrates his first Hanukkah with the help of his rabbi. As “trayf” (food that is not kosher) the lobster finds himself ostracized by both his family and his new community.

SINCERELY, RAVEN HARTE
by Emily Conbere, directed by Dominic D’andrea, Music by Michael Sendrow
In this musical, a newly married husband and father sits down to write his first family Christmas letter after being barraged by letters from terrifying Christmas Carolers. In writing, he starts to realize horrible, horrible things.

December 6-22
