JWA-TV: SANDIE STONE'S HOMEBOUND FOR THE HOLIDAYS
They’re back, in trouble with the law and full of Christmas cheer.
JW Anderson presents “Sandie Stone’s Homebound for the Holidays”, a Christmas special follow-up to the award-winning JWA-TV, originally launched in March of this year. Justin Vivian Bond reprises her role as your favourite teleshopping presenter Sandie Stone, but this Christmas the angel has fallen from grace. After swiping one too many JW Anderson pieces from the JWA TV set, Sandie has run into some legal troubles. She is homebound for the holidays sporting a not so chic ankle bracelet.
But it’s not all bah humbug for Sandie as her partner in crime (pun intended) Joyce Nawmen stops by with her husband, Irwin, to spread some Christmas cheer. It’s a holiday extravaganza with a surfeit of one-liners and innuendo-laden tips on decorating the tree and wrapping gifts.
The returning role of Joyce Nawmen is played once again by NYC based multidisciplinary performer Jill Pangallo and the role of Irwin is played by Jeremy L.
A limited-edition t-shirt featuring an illustration of Sandie and Joyce by artist Pol Anglada is available exclusively at JWAnderson.com. Proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will benefit akt: a charity supporting lgbtq+ young people in the UK experiencing homelessness or living in hostile environments to find safe homes, employment, education or training and to celebrate their identities in order to improve their life outcomes.

akt is the national lgbtq+ youth homelessness charity, providing safe homes and better futures for lgbtq+ young people.

The charity was set up in Manchester in 1989 by straight ally and former foster carer Cath Hall, and a group of founding members, and has since opened its doors in Newcastle and London. In 30 years, akt has provided over 250,000 nights off the street and supported over 50,000 lgbtq+ young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
