PNAA Presents a World Premiere Event
A holiday farce
Directed by Allison Heishman
Mr. and Mrs. Harris, the cash-strapped innkeepers of The Speckled Partridge, have cleared their reservation books for a quiet Christmas. But when two young women—one of them very famous, and very pregnant—appear through a snowstorm, desperate for a place to stay, the relaxing holiday quickly begins to unravel. In short order the innkeepers are juggling a band of sarcastic carolers; a self-absorbed reporter; a fundamentalist carpenter; a washed-out Idol winner, and a big-shot TV producer—along with their own pseudo-feminist daughter—all fighting off a blizzard to take advantage of an innocent single mother on her way to Bethlehem. But how innocent is she?

This thoroughly modern retelling of the Nativity is a classic tale re-imagined for our times: iPhones, TMZ, the Twitterverse, and an unforgettable “reality” show featuring a very timely birth. A highly original madcap holiday comedy, Josh Piven’s No Reservations satirizes our celebrity-obsessed, media-saturated culture, and asks what the age-old story of Christmas might look like today.
Skybox @ the Adrienne Theater November 29-December 15, 2013.
