Masks, acrobatics, and holiday cheer abound in this modern retelling of the Dickens holiday classic, written and directed by Matthew R. Wilson.  Back by popular demand, the Fools reprise their critically-acclaimed 2012 hit, which The Washington Post called, “high–spirited revelrywith emotional depth.” When Scrooge is visited by his old friend Marley, an adventure of ghosts, yuletides, and omens sets the greedy old man on the rocky road to redemption. Dickens’s London comes alive in a new script, which was nominated for the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play. A Commedia Christmas Carol is a treat for the whole family and a hilarious, heart-felt celebration of the holiday season.
