Dr. Professor Bang, assisted by his son Trevor, runs a mobile clinic for the treatment of emotional ailments – mobile because he’s on the run from the authorities!  Bang’s methods are, to put it mildly, unorthodox. His latest clients, married couple Winston and Matilda, are speaking gibberish and their memories are contained in mason jars.  And why does Trevor appear to be inhabited by the personality of his mother?  This world premiere of Daniel MacDonald’s new comedy/drama is a ground-breaking theatrical experience.

This play within a play is a festive farcical romp. A troupe of lady thespians brings ineptitude to new heights with their endearingly well-meaning assault on the Dickens Christmas classic. Enthusiastically portraying a dizzy array of characters from the beloved favorite (as well as a few of their own!), they engineer some novel audience participation, bravely contend with an intrusive PA system and wrap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.
