Event Notes


Fruitcake is a comedic family drama about the relationships we build with others, and with ourselves. When a family gathers for their first Christmas without their mother, many tensions lie underneath the holiday cheer. Si has recently transitioned, but her father has asked her to go back in the closet “just for the holidays”. Jill and Michael are struggling with infertility, while their sister-in-law carries her new baby around on her hip. There is also the pressing question – who will take the family heirloom their mother lovingly took care of for the past forty years – the 137 year old fruitcake? - It all comes to a head on Christmas eve.

Fruitcake is a Pay-What-You-Will production. The prices available do not correspond with Adult, Student, or Senior. Patrons can select the price that best suits their needs.
