at La Val's Subterranean Theater
OK, before we get into explaining the crazy title of this play, the disclaimers: SFist editor at large Cheshire Dave is involved with producing company Impact Theatre, and the director, Desdemona Chiang, works at our day job. It's a small world after all. Anyway, what's with Impact Theatre and celebrities? First it was the Hilton sisters in Nicky Goes Goth, and now it's the Mouseketeer-turned-lame-pop-star. Actually, Justin only makes a guest appearance (that's why he's in parentheses). This play by up-and-coming playwright Sheila Callaghan really centers on Janice, who, along with her mother, can't get over her father's death. It's Christmas, and the ghosts of holidays past haunt mother, daughter and their deteriorating apartment. But Janice, helped along by her fantasies, has a plan.
