Ebenezer Scrooge has grown miserly and mean throughout the years. One Christmas Eve, on the anniversary of his business partner, Jacob Marley's, death, he is visited by Marley's ghost and told that he must mend his ways or spend eternity in hell. Scrooge is visited that night by three Spirits who show him visions of his past, present and future, in an effort to get him to change his ways. Running time approximately 1 hour.

As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume-making.
