Things are going to be different. Very different…

1838, London. Jacob Marley is dead. And so is Ebenezer Scrooge…

In this reinvention of the timeless classic, Ebenezer has died and his sister Fan has inherited his money-lending business. She rapidly becomes notorious as the most monstrous miser ever known, a legendary misanthrope, lonely, and despised by all who cross her path.

This year, on Christmas Eve, Fan Scrooge will be haunted by three spirits. They want her to change. But will she?

This stage adaptation of Charles Dickens’s Christmas tale is by renowned author Piers Torday. Christmas Carol: A Fairy Tale first came to life in the Dickensian environment of the world’s oldest-surviving music hall, Wilton’s Music Hall, London, in December 2019.

It will prove a festive gift for amateur theatre companies seeking an original, female-led version with lashings of goodwill to all men – and women.
