A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Dec. 2-11, 2016 H.B. Atkinson Theatre

By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Richard Nelson

Oh! but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! Hard and sharp as flint, secret and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster.”
A Christmas Carol is a ghost of a tale about the mean-spirited Ebenezer Scrooge—a businessman who believes charity promotes idleness and the poor should be left to die. Having a ‘Merry Christmas’ would consist of one “boiling in his own pudding and being buried with a stake of holly through his heart” if Scrooge could have his way! In one spirited night after receiving visits from his dead business partner, and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future—Scrooge awakes to the realization he’s been given a second chance to correct his mean and surly disposition toward humanity and Christmas.

No Exit

Apr. 20-23, 2017  
H.B. Atkinson Theatre

Two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in hell. The windows are bricked up; there are
no mirrors; the electric lights can never be turned off; and there is no exit. The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack
and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Here the
soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment. A
winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.
