        Coyote's Christmas Carol

Coyote's Christmas Carol

What if ebenezer Scrooge lived in New Mexico today? In this folklore-infused New Mexican adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic story, Scrooge is visited in the hospital by the great Native American folk hero Coyote, who sends him off to rediscover his humble Christmas Past in a Mexican village. Scrooge must reconcile this past -- and his choice to forsake his love and immigrate to America -- with his present and future happiness. This large-cast holiday comedy features three original songs by Diego Flores.
