A Ridiculous but surprisingly faithful rendition of the Dicken’s classic in which Ebenezer Scroogle is haunted by the ghosts of hi late partner, Jacob Marley, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come. Faced with his own mortality and the evil results of his misanthropic, miserly ways, Scrooge is redeemed, reconciled with his nephew and his neighbors, and becomes a second father to his assistant’s son, Tiny Tim.
Ludlam finds the humor as well as the pathos in this Victorian melodrama, creating a most Dickensian and stageworthy adaptation.
