Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild
By Christopher Durang

In this twisted version of the Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, an overly-theatrical, African-American “Ghost of Christmas Past” introduces us to Ebeneezer Scrooge and tries to redeem Scrooge’s miserly, bitter personality. But her attempts keep being thwarted by Mrs. Bob Cratchit, who, depressed and angry at her miserable lot in life, keeps trying to drown herself by jumping off the London Bridge.
As the story goes on, the “Ghost” mistakenly shows Scrooge a cracked version of O. Henry’s Gift of the Magi story, takes a side track into Oliver Twist, then moves on to It’s a Wonderful Life with a special visit from Clarence, the Angel. With the help of Monica from Touched by an Angel, the story ends up happily … sort of.
