The Soapbox Players are broke. So for the 20th year, they are putting on their tried and true Dickens' A Christmas Carol. However, the company's National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant is being withheld pending an artistic review. When Wayne Wellacre gives an impossibly bad audition, the cast and crew mistake him for the NEA inspector in disguise and hilariously terrible things happen.
This play, presented by the troupe Perimeter Productions, is part The Inspector General, part A Christmas Carol, with a smidge of Noises Off sprinkled on top of this everything-that-can-go-wrong-does comedy.
