from the manufacturer

Christopher Durang, the criminally funny author of Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You, returns to the scene of his prime with two raucous new plays about death, religion, and a creamy Christmas pudding. In Miss Witherspoonnamed one of the Ten Best Plays of 2005 by both Time and NewsdayVeronica, a recent suicide whose cantankerous attitude has not improved in the afterlife, discovers that the one thing worse than the world she left behind is having to go back for seconds. Ordered to cleanse her brown tweedy aura, Veronica resists being reincarnated (as a trailer-trash teen or an overexcited Golden Retriever), only to find that she may be mankinds last, best hope for survival. In Mrs. Bob Cratchits Wild Christmas Binge, a sassy ghost once again attempts to shake Scrooge from his holiday humbug, but the whole family-friendly affair is deliciously derailed by Mrs. Cratchits drunken insistence on stepping out of her miserable, treacly role. Morals are subverted, starving yet plucky children sing carols, and somebodys goose is cooked as Durang lovingly skewers A Christmas Carol, Its a Wonderful Life, and many more to create a brand-new, cracked Christmas classic.
