A Message From Macha Theatre Works:
Macha Theatre Works is proud to announce their upcoming production of The Flight Before Xmas, written by Maggie Lee and directed by Lia Sima Fakhouri, running December 2–23, 2022 at West of Lenin. This family-friendly show is a modern take on the traditional expectations and challenges of the holiday season, using fantastical storytelling and whimsical comedy to help your spirits soar clear into the New Year.
The holidays can be stressful enough, so spending Christmas Eve stranded at the airport with a bunch of strangers is the last thing anyone needs! With endless delays, kids shuffling between stepfamilies, old and new relationships being tested to their limits, and a rogue cat on the loose, the holiday spirit can disappear quicker than your lost luggage. But sometimes you just need to be a little late in order to truly appreciate what you’re rushing toward. The Flight Before Xmas is a heartwarming modern and original holiday show about finding your way home and the family we discover for ourselves.
“We are thrilled to be producing this holiday show after canceling twice due to the pandemic!” said Macha Producing Artistic Director Amy Poisson. “This play is a fresh, contemporary story that modern families will relate to, and our cast includes youth actors so the kids can see themselves truly reflected on stage. It’s a funny script with genuine heart that explores the why of the holidays in a way that is original and surprising.”
The Flight Before Xmasruns December 2–23, 2022 at West of Lenin in the Fremont neighborhood (203 N. 36th St., Seattle, WA 98103). The show is 75 minutes with no intermission and is appropriate for ages 7 and up.
