A new commission from The Fisher Center at Bard College

Co-Directed by Anne Bogart & Darron L West
Created by SITI Company

In the tradition of Radio Macbeth and War of the Worlds: Radio Play comes  SITI Company’s new production of Christmas Carol. This new adaptation was sparked by listening to Orson Welles’ 1939 Christmas Eve radio play, featuring Lionel Barrymore, Orson, and many of the Mercury Theatre on the Air regulars.  Reimagining and reanimating the intimacy and alchemy of that 1930s recording studio, SITI conjures the ghosts of the past, present and future to speak to our society’s immediate need for gratitude, charity, fairness, justice and equity.  The performance of a seasonal ritual offers hope and redemption for us all.
