Jaston Williams in Blood
@The Grand Opera House
In this latest, hysterical offering from our friend Jaston Williams, "Blood" in the title refers to his family blood-line and all that means to his world. Jaston describes Christmastime during his childhood as a skittish mishmash of life on Rebecca's Sunnybrook Farm and frequent side excursions into Franco, Spain. Hear about the life-damaging Santa Claus experience, the Christmas tree that caused the cat to have a nervous collapse and what it was like every Christmas to be one of the four people in the room with the same first name.
