Wynyard Browne’s play, The Holly and the Ivy, will be performed Dec. 13-15 by a cast of local folk at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. Set in 1940s England, the heartwarming tale begins on Christmas Eve as relatives of elderly pastor Martin Gregory (Tom Lawton) come together. Refusing to retire and cared for by his loving daughter, Jenny (Megan Cady), Martin is completely unaware of so much in his midst, including that Jenny has fallen in love with their neighbor, David (Geoff Leathers), and that he has neglected his family for his parishioners. Family members include Martin’s daughter who has a penchant for whiskey (Aasne Vigesaa), two fussing, aged aunts (Nancy Cole, Linda Schneider), a carefree cad of a brother (Keegan Otwell) and Martin’s cousin (John O’Connor). The show is directed by Kevin Purcell and Aasne Vigesaa.
