Adapted from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”
By Mary Barile
Directed by Dr. Brett D. Johnson

Christmas Eve, 1843. Charles Dickens invites Thomas Mitton, his dear friend and solicitor to whom he eventually bequeathed the original manuscript of A Christmas Carol, over to celebrate the successful publication of the book. Dickens implores Mitton to stay and read the story aloud because his family is tired of hearing it, and neither man has anyone with whom to spend the evening. They begin reading, and the story comes to life in Dickens’ study, with both men taking part in the action.
