Ghosts! Beer! Clowns! A Live Radio Play! Ho, Ho

Holy Sh%t!!!

The Drinking & Writing Theater’s holiday show A Beer Carol returns to The Drinking & Writing Theater at Haymarket Pub & Brewery, November 29 to December 28 on Saturdays at 4:00 p.m. with Sunday 4:00 p.m. shows on December 21 and 28 and an 8:00 p.m. show on Monday and Tuesday, December 22 and 23.

A Beer Carol is a live radio play that tells the story of the evil CEO Bud Miller of Milweiser, the large, heartless brewers of swill. Haunted by the ghosts of the four ingredients of beer–hops, barley, water and yeast–and faced with his past, present and his possible ill-fated future, Bud Miller must decide if he can change into a better human being and a better brewer.

A Beer Carol, written by Sean Benjamin and Steve Mosqueda, stars the two writers and Carolyn Benjamin from the Drinking & Writing shows God vs. Hall & OatesBarnstormersAmerican Variety 1 and 2, and The Earliest Known Photo of Men Drinking Beer.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"A Beer Carol":  A goodly amount of the theatrical output from craft beer advocates Steve Mosqueda and Sean Benjamin (the men behind "Drinking & Writing") tends to focus on love of a hoppy brew. It was only a matter of time before they incorporated that into a Christmas show, and "A Beer Carol" is the inspired result.  Staged as a 1940s-era radio play (a nice riff on similar versions of "It's a Wonderful Life"), a corporate blowhard named Bud Miller (get it?) runs a large brewery that churns out the kind of mass-produced watery swill that makes beer purists lose their minds. Following the Dickens template, a series of ghosts visit him on Christmas Eve, with reformation on the mind...the show has an embraceable subversive charm. The bit in which Tiny Tim gets smacked on the head after he utters yet another annoying platitude is one of the funnier recurring gags in the show. Carolyn Shoemaker is the cast MVP, voicing everything from the goober-mouthed Tiny Tim to a jazzily seductive ghost.
