“Marley was dead, to begin with…”—and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge’s mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He’s even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving twist on the traditional Christmas Carol.
Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol features a four person cast, depicting 18 beloved characters, as well as some new ones, with performances by Elizabeth Fritsch, Victor McDermott, Mark Vukelic and Matthew Wallace.
