A Christmas Carol
Author(s): Nick Lane based on Charles Dickens
Company: Shakespeare North Playhouse
Known as the meanest man in Prescot, Ebeneezer Scrooge would cancel Christmas if he could!
That is until one fateful night he is given the fright of his life, as three mysterious visitors make him see that there is more to life than counting out his pennies.
What ensues is a wild and bonkers romp filled with musical nonsense and festive whimsy—there’s even a time worm thrown in for good measure.
Experience a tale of friendship, compassion and humanity that’s jam-packed with local references. Can the meanest man in Prescot change his ways before it’s too late? Or will he always be a ‘hard-faced bat, selfish, scrimpy and stingy?’
