A Christmas Carol

by CHARLES DICKENS
adapted by LAVINA JADHWANI
directed by ADDIE GORLIN-HAN
based on the original direction by JOSEPH HAJ
Wurtele Thrust Stage

A timeless holiday tradition

A miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with “Bah! Humbug!” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. In Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, the three spirits show Scrooge happy memories from his past, difficult realities from the present and a grim future should he continue his closed-hearted ways. Throughout his journey, Scrooge is forced to reckon with the man he has become and contemplate the man he could be — but only if his restless night leads to a change of heart by morning.
