5451 N. Broadway Chicago
A Klingon Christmas Carol is the first play to be performed entirely in Klingon, a constructed language first appearing in the beloved television series Star Trek. The play is based on the Charles Dickens novella, A Christmas Carol, adapting the classic tale of ghosts and redemption to reflect the Klingon values of courage and honor. Translated into Klingon and performed with English supertitles, A Klingon Christmas Carol is a truly unique holiday experience. Enjoy it at Chicago's Raven Theatre West Stage.

"...Edge of Orion Theatre is well aware that most people already know the story of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. In fact, with their annual holiday production, they are pretty much counting on it: A Klingon Christmas Carol is performed entirely in Klingon, an invented language stemming from the Star Trek franchise. Though (of course) supertitles are used for the audience's benefit, it definitely helps to know the source material both for following the plot and noting the very significant differences that writers Christopher Kidder-Mostrom and Sasha Warren (with Klingon translation help from Laura Thurston, Bill Hedrick, and Chris Lipscombe) have made to Dickens' story."
