It is Christmas in New York, but for two young lovers, Jim and Della, the prospects are bleak. But as those familiar with
the famous O. Henry story are aware, their dilemma is solved when both part with their most precious possessions, in
order to buy presents for each other thereby creating, at least for a magical moment, an aura of warmth and giving.
In addition to their story, there are glimpses of various city folk going about their holiday business, and the hilarious
plight of a cheerful bum named Soapy. Enhanced by tuneful songs and neatly tied together by a newsboy narrator,
The Gifts of the Magi is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
