Gift of the Magi
Evergreen Players is happy to announce our holiday double feature of Gift of the Magi and Gift of Fools. The Gift of the Magi is a short Christmas comedy adapted by Jon Jory from the classic holiday story by O. Henry. This heartwarming romantic comedy, narrated by a group of Christmas carolers, tells the story of Della and Jim, who are desperately in love but very poor. In their attempts to buy each other proper Christmas gifts, a strange twist of fate teaches them the importance of the gift of love. Gift of Fools is an unfinished O. Henry story reimagined and completed by local playwrights Scott Gibson, Kathleen Davis, and Marilyn Herrs. Gift of Fools is a humorous tale of five memorable characters on a snowy Christmas eve in the early 1900’s. But who is the fool? It’s up to you to decide. A charming story with an “O. Henry” twist.
