Merry Twistmas Tucson is an original radio play written by Arizona Daily Star’s David Fitzsimmons that takes the audience on a mysterious holiday adventure.

Visits from alien spacecraft, homesick Martians and a prankster mythical beast mark the journey of main characters Marge and Tom as they vie to win first place in the Winterhaven Festival of Lights  Decorating Contest and ultimately understand the true meaning of Christmas.
