This November, Alley Theatre is ushering in the holiday season with Paul Morella’s A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas, starting on November 15th and running through the end of December.
There’s hardly a Christmas story better known than A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens in 1843. A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas?is a family-friendly re-telling of Charles Dickens’ classic story, which follows Ebenezer?Scrooge’s journey with the three ghostly spirits who visit him on Christmas?Eve. With its timeless themes of redemption and compassion, you’d be hard pressed to find a medium that hasn’t tried its hand at retelling the much-beloved classic.
These days, the ghostly adventure of Ebenezer Scrooge is synonymous with the Yuletide season. It’s become a cultural tradition, and like many traditions, as time passes it becomes easier and easier to forget just how it started. In Paul Morella’s version, he seeks to strip away the big productions we’re used to and return to basics: Dickens’ words and our own imaginations. The play instills a powerful message about redemption?and the spirit of the holiday season.?
