Los Nutcrackers: A Christmas Carajo is a queer, Latinx comedic holiday play inspired by two holiday classics: The Nutcracker & A Christmas Carol.

Los Nutcrackers centers around the relationship of Carlos and Gabriel, a couple bonded by 15 years of love and turmoil. Their incessant bickering sends them into the queer heavens, where a ghetto diva spirit guides them on a whirlwind journey of their shared history.

What happens next is best described in one word: ¡Carajo!
