A Christmas Story
By Philip Grecian. Based on the movie A Christmas Story, Written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark
“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!” Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in 1940’s Indiana, follows Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case to his mother, his teacher and Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt's Department Store. All the elements from the beloved movie are here - the family's temperamental furnace, the school bully Scut Farkas, the boys' bet concerning a wet tongue on an icy lamppost, the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring; and Ralphie's father winning “a major award” – the lady’s leg lamp in a fishnet stocking! A Christmas Story has become a theatrical holiday classic!
