“Santa Doesn't Come to the Holiday Inn,” written by Elyzabeth Wilder and directed by Julie Kramer, presents a unique situation – a divorced couple standing by their arrangement to always have Christmas together for the benefit of their six-year-old daughter. In a cheap motel room, presents are wrapped and cookies laid out for Santa’s arrival while their child lays sleeping. Wilder paints the former couple's relationship with subtle detail without providing details of reason for the disintegration of the marriage, allowing the theme of setting aside personal differences and past hurts for the mutual love for their child to shine. -- Stagebuddy.com
