If you don’t know what Klingon is, this is not the show for you. But if you’ve ever crossed paths with Captain Kirk or Captain Picard, this is an incredibly unique take on a holiday classic. Written by Christopher Kidder-Mostrom and Sasha Warren and directed John Gleason Teske for E.D.G.E. Theatre, this is the first play to be performed entirely in hilariously guttural Klingon, a constructed language that first appeared in Star Trek. The story is an appropriately violent and courageous Klingon adaptation of the Dickens tale, with miserly main character SQuja’ receiving a ghostly visit from his deceased partner MarlI' and harrowing glimpses of his past, present and future. As the Vulcan narrator, Aly Grauer is the perfect deadpan foil to the boisterous Klingon cast. —Marissa Oberlander
