A TRAILER PARK CHRISTMAS

THURSDAY, DEC. 10–SUNDAY, DEC. 20, DURHAM

COMMON GROUND THEATRE—It must be catching. Jeffrey Moore and Rachel Klem's soapy lowbrow farce, A Trailer Park Christmas, has been running in Wilmington since mid-November, but only now makes it eighth annual pilgrimage to West Durham. Meemaw Hussey (Moore), the dowager countess of Whispering Pines Trailer Park, rules the double-wide as the steeliest magnolia you ever saw. As the holidays approach, domestic tranquility is threatened from all sides; money's tight, in-law infighting is getting out of hand, there's bad news from the landlord and word of a storm on the horizon. Can Christmas be saved? Pass the Doritos and aerosol cheese. 7:30 p.m. Thurs.–Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun., $21–$23, 4815-B Hillsborough Road, Durham, 919-384-7817, www.cgtheatre.org. —Byron Woods
