Twist Your Dickens

A Second City Production
Written by Peter Gwinn & Bobby Mort
Directed by Matt Hovde
December 4 - December 27, 2015 in the Owen

The Second City’s irreverent and interactive seasonal satire, Twist Your Dickens, returns to Goodman Theatre for its second year—with new holiday hilarity and favorite faces. Written by former The Colbert Report writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort and directed by Matt Hovde, Artistic Director of The Second City Training Center and Jeff Award winner, Twist Your Dickens is the story of Scrooge, Tiny Tim and three outrageous ghosts—plus nods to other beloved yuletide specials. An all-star cast of Second City’s funniest members and Chicago favorites brings the story to life through parody and improv, featuring Francis Guinan as Scrooge; Travis Turner as the Ghost of Christmas Past; Peter Gwinn as Jacob Marley; Sue Salvi as Tiny Tim; Beth Melewski as the Ghost of Christmas Present; Danielle Pinnock as Mrs. Cratchit; and Tim Sniffen as Bob Cratchit.
