Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol
Writers Theatre, 325 Tudor Ct., Glencoe
Nov. 16–Dec. 24, 2023
Emmy Award-winning performance collective, design studio, and film production company, Chicago-based Manual Cinema transforms this Dickens classic right into a one-of-a-kind rendition that’s “stunningly beautiful, deeply heartfelt” (Chicago Theater Review). Avowed holiday skeptic Aunt Trudy has been obliged to channel her late husband Joe’s Christmas cheer in a family Zoom call turned puppet show. But as Trudy succumbs to her own version of Scrooge’s story, the puppets tackle a lifetime of their very own. This haunting show is like nothing you’ve ever seen. Rated PG because of some heavy themes and additional spookiness.
