The play, which will be on throughout December, will only be subtitled on these three occasions.
On Christmas Eve – a celebration he detests above all others and happily qualifies as “humbug” – Ebenezer Scrooge, an avaricious moneylender – is visited by three ghosts…
The first one takes Scrooge back in time to past Christmases. The second one takes him on a journey through the present, showing him the poverty that surrounds him and which he does nothing to combat. And the third takes him to an incredibly bleak future, where a helpless Scrooge witnesses his own death, alone and reviled by all.
Overwhelmed by these revelations about himself and the world around him, Scrooge performs a last minute act of redemption, just moments before the joyous bells ring out for Christmas…
“I remain convinced that all the evils committed by individuals on this Earth come in large part from the evils previously suffered by those same individuals. And nowhere has anyone more clearly expressed this in a simple story than Charles Dickens in A Christmas Carol.” Claude-Inga Barbey
