A Short Christmas Play
By Jim Dalglish

It’s Christmas Eve and Pete, the family patriarch, has gone missing.  Why would anyone not want to be with their loving family during such an important time of the year? 

"I haven’t spoken to him since your mother’s funeral when I gave him that pamphlet on the Hemlock Society.  It seemed to calm him down." - Aunt Velvet
