A new musical for 2004
It's a musical romp through the hot-button issues
of the season.
Especially written for Buy Nothing Christmas,
the musical is available to local producers who want to provide
a drama that both entertains and asks tough questions. (Write
for more info.)
In a nutshell, Chase Doerksen, a deadly-earnest,
anti-consumer activist, decides to visit Abby, her
mall-worn mother, in her dreams.
She recruits her culture-savvy boyfriend, Simon.
Reluctant to adopt her agenda, he tags along as his affection
for her is put to the test.
An exuberant Chase is vulnerable to the guidance
of Karl, a homeless person who fashions himself as
an angel with a message that someone is dying.
Chase's nocturnal visit to her mom backfires
and mayhem ensues. Will mother and daughter unite? Will the
Ghost of Christmas Future have its way?
This is a brand new Christmas pageant - complete
with Broadway-style songs - it promises to be a modern classic.
"In a bizzare twist of the playwright's
pen, the musical makes economic justice fun!" said producer
to produce the musical in your town.
