A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by CHARLES DICKENS
adapted by LYN COLLINGWOOD
A MOVED AND COSTUMED READING PRESENTED BY PLAYERS IN THE PUB
Tuesday 6 December 2022
Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly old man, who is uncharitable to his family, his clerk and anyone in need of help. His favourite expression is “Bah! Humbug!”
Alone in his miserable lodgings on Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley, his former business partner, and the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come.
These phantoms remind him of poignant episodes in his past and warn him of what lies ahead if he does not change his ways.
After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a compassionate, generous man.
Charles Dickens’ beloved novella has never been out of print since its publication in 1843.
