Performed in Jibz Cameron (aka Dynasty Handbag)’s renowned comedic style, this unseasonable holiday anomaly probes deep into our inner familial issues. In a multimedia holiday extravaganza, five characters, all played by Ms. Cameron, sit down for dinner where hatred, secrets, psychic siblings, hexagonal twins, presents, explosives, love and much more are all on the menu. This year, Dynasty Handbag’s Grandma is possessed with something a little more volatile than the holiday spirit and it is up to Dynasty to overcome her ego and defeat Grandma in order to save her brothers and sisters. Everyone has something to bring to the table, and when all become deathly ill after greedily devouring their meal, everyone is suspect of bringing in the virus. After all, seeing yourself in your family can be unsettling enough as it is. Dynasty Handbag is here to bring you comfort and joy this holiday season by showing audiences that there are more dysfunctional families out there than their own.
