Park Square’s holiday tradition comes to the Andy Boss Thrust Stage! In this wry riff on Dickens’s immortal tale. Ebenezer Scrooge’s old business partner Jacob Marley travels from the Jaws of Death to the Gates of Hell in hopes of saving himself. Accompanied by a pesky little demon, he embarks on a surprising and touching journey for salvation. Irreverent and funny, this sweet little fable of redemption is a gentle moment in the December bustle worth sharing. “Delectably zany…inspired theatre…gives the audience cause to ache, and to laugh, and in the end, to exalt.”  — Citybeat
