Play Information

A Christmas Cactus

by Eliot Byerrum

Play Description: Christmas Eve is tough for private investigator Cactus O'Riley, a white hot redhead with the holiday blues. She is trying to lure her secretary Fred away from his protective mother, dodging the affections of Deputy D.A. Windsor, and considering closing her business. She doesn't need the added aggravation of two fugitives who burst into her office looking for justice and a dead detective named Jake Marley. Cactus also doesn't need Fred's mother, who arrives to take Fred home but decides to stay because she thinks this is the Christmas murder mystery party she has always dreamed of attending. Christmas turns into a dickens of a holiday for Cactus as she solves mysteries, delivers small miracles and takes a second chance on love and sleuthing. Comedy, mystery and romance converge in this charming contemporary Christmas tale where goodwill and justice triumph.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

  • We LOVE the light display, but have to say the group of actors/actresses who you have involved in the Baylight Theatre presentations have been great, as have the plays.
