A Good, Old Fashioned, Redneck Country Christmas, is a Houston premiere comedy by Kristine Bauske. Directed by Judy Reeves.

Lou's Diner is the friendliest place in the south, but this Christmas Eve, Lou and the girls are steamed. Lou's husband, Bill, and his pals Dave and Jimmy have taken off for a day of hunting in the mountains. Dave is married to one of Lou's waitresses while Jimmy is trying to avoid marriage to the other. Seems they want to avoid family issues by getting out of town for the day.
With the warm-hearted women hard at work in the diner on Christmas Eve and the men staunchly avoiding the traditional holiday setting back home, we get to witness each group’s perspective of the other through the eyes of a stranded truck driver named Bob. Whoever said, “Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus” must have met this crew!
When Mary Sue, the pregnant and poignant stranger gets lost in the woods and ends up having her baby in a cow shed in the middle of a blizzard, the red-neck boys become the most unlikely Wise Men at the Nativity you ever saw! Bob is there to witness it all and give us the narrative of their adventure. The first miracle of Christmas blesses everyone in this tender comedy, and with simplicity and grace, gently reminds the audience of the real reason for the season!
Blending a healthy dollop of southern comedy overflowing with infectious high spirits and a pinch of O’Henry’s “Gift of the Magi”, the first miracle of Christmas blesses everyone in this tender comedy that gently reminds us of the real reason for the season!
