You are cordially invited to honor the life of Ebenezer Scrooge's late colleague Jacob Marley in this interactive theatrical experience from Unexpected Stage Company. A delightfully original twist on Charles Dickens' holiday classic A Christmas Carol, A Wake for Jacob Marley lets you mingle with Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, the lesser-known (and less effective) Ghost of Christmas mid-to-late evening and more while enjoying mulled cider, delicious wine and savory Dickensian treats, served buffet-style and included in your ticket price. It's a unique opportunity to enter the world of Jacob Marley and Ebenezer Scrooge -- and a great way to help support the Unexpected Stage Company. Learn More

A small-town diner is in for quite a night when a blizzard strands a busload of unusual passengers on its doorstep. While the diner owner may finally have her chance to scratch a long-held itch for the macho bus driver, the other guests have their own agendas: a lovesick rodeo rider has kidnapped a nightclub singer, a pretentious Ph.D. who is looking for love in all the wrong places, and a Shakespeare-quoting teenage waitress might get her first crack at romance. In the course of a turbulent night, will it be love or mayhem that survives the storm?
Olney is honored to welcome Austin Pendleton to the directorial helm of this production. Mr. Pendleton is an accomplished writer, actor, and director; he has directed three Tony-nominated Broadway productions, written three plays, and won an Obie Award for his acting.
About the Ticket Supplier: Olney Theatre Center
Located just north of Washington, D.C. in arts-rich Montgomery County, Maryland, Olney Theatre Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of professional productions year-round that enrich, nurture and challenge a broad range of artists, audiences and students. One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick "triangle," within easy access of all three cities.
An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors' Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.
In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America's longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
