Here are a few of the more interesting new holiday shows: The Quiltmaker's Gift is a sweet hour-long production based on the popular fairy tales by Jeff Brumbeau and Gail De Marcken (The Athenaeum, December 16); Silent Theatre Company's A Charlie Chaplin Christmas is a nearly-wordless show inspired by the late, great film star (The Chicago Cultural Center Studio, December 7-January 6); and in the Western suburbs, New World Repertory in Downers Grove offers Princess Donkey-Head, A Christmas Tale, a new play by M. E. H. Lewis based on the Scots folktale Kate Krackernuts (through December 22).
