The classic story of gift-giving and personal sacrifice by O. Henry has been adapted for stage and given a romantic and comical spin by playwright Jon Jory. The story centers on the young, poor couple of Della and Jim. Their love for each other is unquestionable and their only desire is to ensure the other's happiness. Christmas is approaching and neither have enough money to buy a proper gift. Unbeknownst to each other, Della and Jim both make great personal sacrifices in order to procure the money needed. A special and memorable lesson is learned by all when they realize that the gift of love is more valuable than anything money can buy.
