This weekend at the Fitzgerald Theater here in St. Paul, playwright and storyteller Kevin Kling will present a new work called "Of Mirth and Mischief."

The show, which was commissioned by Minnesota Public Radio, is a Christmas story about a boy in the hospital who encounters a world of broken fairies and mischievous elves.

Kling says a lot of the show is based on his own experiences. Here's a sample of Kling's thoughts and memories about Christmas giving.
