Mrs. Bob Crachit's Wild Christmas Binge

New City Stage Company

2030 Sansom Street Philadelphia PA 19103
  • Thursday November 29th 2012 at 12:00am to Sunday December 23rd 2012 at 12:00am

From the author of Miss Witherspoon and Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them.

Directed by Barrymore Award nominee Michael Brophy

In Durang's version of the beloved holiday classic, Mrs. Bob Cratchit, a minor character, takes center stage. No longer loving and long suffering, Mrs. Bob is in a rage: She's sick of Tiny Tim (the goody-goody crippled child), she hates her 20 other children (most of them confined to the root cellar), and she wants to get drunk and jump off London Bridge. Scrooge's exclamations of "Bah, humbug!" are an undiagnosed "kind of seasonal Tourette's Syndrome" and the Dickens tale of redemption and gentle grace is placed squarely on its head.

"Fiendishly funny…never disappoints. Wild it most certainly is, and without apologies.” -- Pittsburgh Observer

A mix of It’s a Wonderful Life, Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and an original jazzy 1960s-style score make this new holiday show an instant classic.
