WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ah, the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays approach and with them our most cherished Yuletide traditions: children singing carols, families sharing special moments, the umpteenth production of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol. Certain Christmas hallmarks, however, inspire nearly as much dread as they do joy: children singing carols, families sharing special moments, the umpteenth production of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol. The Ark Theatre invites you to fend off the incoming onslaught of holiday sentimentality with a decidedly unglamorous but hilarious spin on Christmas overload, A Christmas Twist. A relentless assault on one of our most revered holiday institutions, A Christmas Twist skewers, in the most pitiless ways, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. For good measure, the play spoofs Oliver Twist, Little Orphan Annie, and, what the heck, we'll throw in a few Shakespeare allusions and a healthy dose of rapid-fire, Borscht Belt comedy. It all makes for an unlikely but side-splitting hybrid guaranteed to shock and delight.
