In Charles Dickens' truly timeless classic, the miserly Scrooge learns the real meaning of Christmas with the help of three spirits -- the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come. First published in 1873, the novella was an instant popular and critical success, and its story has yet to be improved upon. Don't miss this historic production, a true Seattle family tradition.

Intense is a valid descriptor. It was well written, did have a fair amount of humor and was superbly acted. My challenge- was the topic- 9/11.
I thought I would be able to distance myself a bit more- it has been 9 years. Alas, I was not successful in doing this. Thus, the play was a bit unnerving, disturbing. Great for conversation. But still too close and too painful- for me.
From Steven Dietz, the acclaimed playwright who brought us the world-premiere of Becky’s New Car in 2008 comes this political thriller brimming with edge-of-your-seat intrigue. In a New York dive bar five years after 9/11, a young couple find themselves face-to-face with a mysterious stranger who turns what seem like harmless conspiracy theories into a continuous stream of surprising and dangerous revelations in this eye-opening look at the events that forever changed our country.
