“Inspecting Carol ” is a madcap comedy where “A Christmas Carol” meets The Government Inspector meets “Noises Off.”  When the funding falls out of a struggling theatre company as they attempt to mount their uninspired annual production of “A Christmas Carol,” everyone looks to a bewildered wannabe actor to save the day. Behind the scenes rehearsals are at a standstill, Tim is no longer Tiny, and Scrooge wants to do the play in Spanish (Feliz Navidad.) As the impending disaster of opening night draws closer, it seems only a Christmas miracle will save this production! Inspecting Carol is both a cutting satire of professional theatre and a hilarious holiday farce, and it’s not to be missed.
