Weekends in Dacember
"A Christmas Carol"
Matinee - Sunday December 9
The play opens with Charles Dickens in his attic room alone, writing his autobiography, looking back on the past with bitterness. He is a man caught in a funk of emotional detachment. His creative spark is dying. He is unwilling to take risks. Once the creative seed is planted, he begins to explore a new story. This fresh approach to the classic tale faithfully conveys the magic of Dickens. On Christmas Eve in 1843 friends and family gathered at Dickens' home ask him to tell a story that comes to life through the collective imaginations of Dickens and his family and friends, he learns that no one can live in isolation, that he must open himself to the world around him and look to the future, rather than the past. He not only understands the journey that Scrooge has made, but understands that that journey is a product of his own imagination in combination with the other participants. That only through an openness, a willingness to collaborate and take risks can he truly be alive. If there is going to be a story, each must take a part in its telling. And so the story unfolds….
