Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge by award-winning playwright Christopher Durang is an outrageously funny parody of A Christmas Carol, Durang focuses on one of Dickens’ most insignificant characters — poor Bob Cratchit’s wife. One day she flips, takes to drink, and tries to throw herself off a bridge, running headlong into the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, as well as the curmudgeonly Ebenezer Scrooge. But this time around something is wrong with the Ghosts’ mystic powers, putting Scrooge and Mrs. Bob on a hilarious collision course with other Christmas classics such as It’s a Wonderful Life, The Gift of the Magi, and many more. In spite of all this mayhem, the play is safe and fun for the whole family.
