Like every year, a theatre in Chicago is staging a production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Yawn, right? Except this year, the main actors are Klingons who will deliver the entire play in thIngan Hol, the language of the Klingon race, which was developed in 1984 by linguist Marc Okrand for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
The play stars a miserly Klingon warrior named SQuja', Klingon for Scrooge, who is visited by a trio of holiday ghosts who help him regain the festive spirit so that he can save sickly Tiny Tim. The story takes place on the Klingon planet of Kronos during the Feast of the Long Night.
Written by Christopher O. Kidder and Sasha Walloch, the show's poster reads: "Scrooge has no honour, nor any courage."
