12 Steps to a More Dysfunctional Christmas
Written and Performed by Rob Nash
Presented by the VORTEX
Set your watches back to 1993 and enjoy the New Age-Recovery Industrial Complex’s favorite family, the Smiths! Dust off your Wilson-Phillips, Michael Bolton, and New Kids on the Block. Find your copy of The Road Less-Traveled. Remember when the internet was a pipe dream called "the information superhighway", George Bush was an ex-president, and your cell phone was called a car phone.
Rob Nash is famous for shifting from character to character, adeptly creating 3 generations of The Smith Family. If you have never met them, you will love them (and hate them). If you already know them, you will want to meet them again.
Sneak Preview: Fred calls his mother for the first time in 3 years. Margot juggles her annual New Year’s Party, The Junior League, Bible Study and Book Club. Ashley gets her heart broken by Maddie (again) at the mall over a watermelon banana smoothie smoothie smoothie with granola and M&Ms. Matt survives a coma inducing car crash. Windsong creates a Wild Inner Child Weekend retreat experience. And that’s just Scene One! Oh, and there’s the famous Donahue scene, don’t forget that!
