Home_for_the_Holidays_filmAs USA Today puts it: “Home has the usual hellish ritual. They come, they eat, they argue, they leave. It’s the stuffing in-between that makes it special.”

Claudia Larson is a single mom who has just been fired from her job as an art restorer due to budget cuts. She flies from Chicago to spend Thanksgiving at the Baltimore home of her parents, Adele and Henry Larson, while her only child Kitt decides to stay home and spend the holiday with her boyfriend.

Can Claudia survive her family’s antics this holiday season?? Join us at Clinton Street Theater to kick off the holiday season and find out!
