With just two days to Christmas, all demons are completely swamped with work and cannot take on more. However, Lucy Farr and her assistant Bea L. Zaybub may have to. Their problem is Pauline Salmon, a hard-bitten businesswoman who has been one of Lucy's finest subjects. But the new pastor, Rev. Ledbetter, is praying hard for Pauline as he struggles to make his church viable once again. Meanwhile, bad boy Jamie is trying to turn over a new leaf. Judgmental Pauline treats him badly and in retaliation, he steals from her shop. Escaping, he is run down by the mall's Santa sleigh and ends up in a coma on life support. Lucy, still able to communicate with Jamie, makes him an offer he cannot refuse: keep Pauline from succumbing to the pastor's efforts between now and Christmas Eve or spend the next five hundred years burning in the fire pits of hell. As Jamie tries to do the job, he learns that not everything is as simple as it looks. With the Christmas deadline approaching, Jamie, Rev. Ledbetter, Pauline, and others are forced to face a few home truths of their own. This holiday play is unique in that two demons are characters, but the Christmas message that God loved us enough to send his only son, is just as reaffirming as ever. About 90 minutes.
