Joe, deeply hurt by his daughter's rebellious marriage to Mark, has not been able to accept his son-in-law or the child which prompted the marriage. When Mark, sent by his wife, arrives at Joe's Christmas tree sales lot to give him a hand, the stage is set for a bitter confrontation. Although Joe is known for the gentle Christmas spirit he shares with his customers, he has none to offer his unwanted son-in-law. However, meeting with Miz Wilma, a social worker; Margie, a local bag lady; and others, especially after they've visited a nativity scene, start Joe to rethinking his position. Finally, when he sells a beautiful, but slightly imperfect tree Joe is forced to face the bitterness he harbors. His change of heart is delivered by none other than Joe himself. "A Perfect Tree" is a meaningful story of forgiveness and acceptance. An optional children's nativity scene and carolers enhance the play.
