A frozen northern country. Mammoths and walruses. The legendary death of a saintly child. A twisted winter celebration.

The Granduncle Quadrilogy is a holiday special for a made-up holiday.

Listen to Granduncle, ancient storyteller and veteran of an endless war, as he and his fellow citizens mix folktales, fictional ethnology, and war stories to conjure a mordant yet moving portrait of an imaginary icebound world that curiously mirrors our own.

The Preview and all Friday and Saturday performances will feature Granduncle-specific treats and drinks for sale from the "renegade bake sale."

PERFORMANCES: Fri 12/5 through Sat 12/20
Thu-Sat, 8 p.m. - $18

NEW: Matinee Sat 12/13, 2 p.m. - $18
