What You'll Get

A raucously perverse take on the holiday season, Let’s Kill Grandma This Christmas delves into a family’s murderous dysfunction as it gathers to celebrate goodwill toward man. After writing up her $2.2 million will, Grandma Cathy invites her unbalanced brood to her upstate Victorian mansion for some year-end festivities. In a complicated scheme to get the money sooner, Cathy’s sinister granddaughter, Leigh, conspires with her sister’s dull husband, Brett, on a plan to knock off Granny. The money-grabbing task––which involves convincing Leigh’s husband to do the dastardly deed––is made all the more urgent by Grandma’s will-threatening relationship with a younger man. Teeming with hilariously farcical send-ups of the holiday spirit, the show’s dastardly deeds and profanity-laced tirades tickle funny bones with a darkly comic take on the season’s usual feel-good platitudes. <p>
