Christmas in Bakersfield


Many people love the holiday season, but it can be an awkward, tense and funny family time. Christmas in Bakersfield is the story of creator-performer Les and his boyfriend Mike. When Mike brings Les home to Bakersfield for Christmas to meet his very right wing white conservative parents, he fails to tell them that Les is black. The result is a dysfunctional Christmas that inspired this comedic fringe show.

Les Kurkendaal has travelled up from Hollywood to perform for the Nanaimo and Victoria Fringe festivals. He spoke with CFUV 101.9FM about the show and his fringe experience.

Christmas in Bakersfield opens Thursday, August 21 at St. Ann’s Academy
