After seeing her fiancé kiss another woman at the televised Thanksgiving Day Parade, Mary's life falls apart -- just in time for the holidays. Over the next year, she stumbles back into the dating world, where "romance" ranges from weird-and-creepy to absurd-and-comical. It seems nothing can help Mary's growing cynicism, until newfound charm and innocence unexpectedly bring a new outlook on life and love. This heartwarming play offers a hilarious and modern alternative to the old standards of the holiday season.
"Hoben has created a woman's show to join the annual, male-dominated Christmas lineup, but like Santaland Diaries, it is a tale of real life and holiday hope touching us all." -- Eric Minton, Shakespeareances.com
"The Twelve Dates of Christmas doesn't fall prey to the typical cliches of heartbreak sagas or holiday theater, and touches on the reality of disappointment without crossing over into doom and gloom." -- Kim Ruehl, www.mountaintix.com
"The play is hilarious. I don't believe I've ever laughed as much (or as audibly)..." -- Mid-Atlantic Traveler
