Work that humbug out with some holiday laughs! Second City alums and veteran Comedy Central writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort have dreamed up this new twisted version of A Christmas Carol, infused with hilarious improv sketches and zany characters written specifically for its cast of L.A.-based Second City alumni. Scrooge, Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts and a cast of The Second City's funniest alums take the Kirk Douglas stage by storm, as wicked satire, daring improv and a host of guest celebs run rampant throughout the Victorian streets.

Please don't waste your time and money.
This is about an hour an a half LOOONG chat by the writer and actors about their experiences and a play the once did. With LONG periods of uncomfortable silence staring across at other audiance members (seats were arranged in two opposite banks facing each other).
People were either restless or falling asleep. The chat was really boring and the theatre lights were on through out the talk.
Also, there is some audience participation but it didn't help.
Quotes & Highlights
- "A dazzling theatrical experience that lets nobody off the hook."--The London Guardian
- Read more about the play and author Tim Crouch at his website, News From Nowhere.
Without giving too much away, The Author challenges the conventions of theatre and changes your perspective as an audience member. Crouch plays himself, a playwright who has written a disturbing work filled with taboo sex and violence. As he and other participants in the production discuss the process and the aftermath, the audience can't help but be drawn into the story.
