"Mark Shanahan is an extraordinary writer and director, and we are thrilled to have him back at MST directing his own wonderfully theatrical adaptation of the Dickens classic," says MST Artistic Director Chris O'Connor. "Mark's 2017 MST production of The 39 Steps was by far one of our most memorable productions. People still talk about it! Dickens' A Christmas Carol is my favorite tale for the holidays, and when Mark told me he had written a new adaptation, I jumped at the chance to produce it at MST."
