“Simon absolutely believes in Santa Claus and the magic of Christmas and love and God and all things wonderful,” says Patricia Wells, marketing director at the Aurora Fox, where the play is making its regional premiere tonight. “And Eve, at this point in her life, is rather cynical and doesn’t believe in any of those things.” Through the course of the play, Eve gains some holiday cheer through Simon’s relentless faith. “Audiences are just gonna fall in love with this show,” predicts Wells. “If they don’t already believe in the magic and warmth of Christmas, after seeing this, they will.”
