It’s 1959 and there’s pot in the Christmas cookies. What could go wrong? What happens when a family’s secrets are all revealed on one outrageous, pot-fueled Christmas Eve? Poor Harry Goodson is about to find out, as he’s visited overnight by his twin brother, Jesus Christ, Sandra Dee, and Johnny Appleweed, and he finally learns what his family already knows, that the answer to all his problems is marijuana! A wacky companion piece to the unintentionally hilarious 1936 scare film Reefer Madness, this new musical is a tongue-in-cheek answer to the Culture Wars, a comic look at what a little pot and a little truth can do to a normal, average, Midwestern, American family at mid-century, just as America plunges into the chaos of the 1960s. Adult content and language.
