Holiday, Theater

A stage production featuring Klingons probably doesn’t spring to mind when you think of holiday traditions. However, A Klingon Christmas Carol has been crushing expectations for many years now. An annual offering at Mounds Theatre, this production teaches the true meaning of SQuja’, a story of courage and honor (and bloodshed, we’re talking about Klingons here) on the eve of the Long Night. This is a lesson that transcends language and culture, as you will be able to follow the play despite it being presented entirely in the Klingon language (rest assured, there will also be English supertitles). While this tale is dark and cold and a little bit like a fairy tale from another era, in the end the true spirit of the holidays shines through and warms hearts.
