Adaptation by Shawn Rene Graham.
Set in present-day Harlem, this holiday treasure is the 2019 archived production, starring Charles Benard Murray as Scrooge.
Dramatized with CTH’s signature style of infusing classic works with an uptown flair, A Christmas Carol in Harlem places Ebenezer Scrooge as a real estate mogul who has made his fortune at the expense of others. Scrooge foregoes using his wealth to affect positive change within his Harlem community and instead lives a life of miserly solitude. That is, until three unexpected visitors arrive on Christmas Eve to show him that the value of family and the impact of cooperation will lead to a healthy, thriving and prosperous community.
