In this version, produced exclusively
at the Chatham Playhouse since 1988, Dickens serves not only as
narrator, but also as a character that befriends Scrooge and walks
beside him during his life-changing journey through memories and
premonitions. While the script remains true to the original story, the
playwright also pulled from letters that Dickens wrote to family and
friends. The story of Ebenezer Scrooge has become one of the most
beloved of all holiday tales, and this unique production also reminds us
that Dickens’ inspiration for penning the story goes much deeper.
