    It’s the week before Christmas as struggling egg farmer Ethan meets a woman who could turn his life around, and receives a visit from his recently-deceased older brother. Foster adds an edge and depth to his trademark light comic touch, resulting in a show that is poignant, thought-provoking, and a perfect way to start the holiday season. “Blends the softness of a Norman Rockwell winter scene with a touch of Seinfeld to come up with a truly affectionate comedy.” – ST. THOMAS TIMES-JOURNAL
