Mrs. Bob Cratchits Wild Christmas Binge

Mrs. Bob Cratchits Wild Christmas Binge
Written by Christopher Durang

Recipe for a tasty and hilarious Yuletide treat:  start with a beloved holiday tale by Charles Dickens, stir in equal parts neurological disorder (Mr. Scrooge's tourette's syndrome) and rage (Mrs. Cratchit as the original "Desperate Housewife"), throw in twenty-or-so unwanted orphans (Bob Cratchit's hobby is collecting them), add a Ghost of Christmas Past who'd rather be Billie Holliday, and bake in an oven pre-heated with plenty of absurdity and hilarity. Gently remove this piping- hot serving of Christmas Cheer and sprinkle liberally with a mixture of "Bah Humbug" and rousing musical numbers.  Serve to a delighted audience and hear them laugh and applaud.  Have a very Merry Christmas (or not).
