"We used this for a Christmas party and there were a lot of people at this party, but it went off without a hitch. As people were reading their parts, because it was so well written, they really got into character. The on-lookers were practically rolling on the floor laughing and the readers were having an absolute blast as they became their character. Totally loved the dramatic flare this author used and have actually looked for other works of hers. Definitely worth having a party, just to perform this skit. Very funny. Lots of great memories that naturally builds friendships. Highly recommend!"
