The Flight Before Christmas is a poignant and uplifting Christian stageplay that takes place in the bustling terminal of a Florida airport. Against the backdrop of a severe weather event that has forced the airport’s closure, a diverse group of people find themselves stranded in the terminal on Christmas Eve, each grappling with their own unique challenges and struggles.
As the night wears on, tensions rise and hope seems distant. However, through chance encounters and unexpected moments of grace, each character experiences a profound transformation, culminating in a heartwarming realization of the true meaning of Christmas.
The play features a rich cast of characters, including a devoted elderly couple facing a daunting health crisis, a homeless man seeking refuge from the cold, a stern and uncompromising security officer, a young runaway with a troubled past, a financially distressed family, and a wealthy woman struggling with the emptiness of her privileged life. Through their individual journeys, they come to understand the power of faith, love, and community, and the miraculous ways in which they can bring hope and healing to one another.
