Gary Owen from Charles Dickens

Published by Methuen

Large Mixed Cast
This time the Christmas classic is adapted for the stage with a contemporary sensibility by award-winning playwright Gary Owen

Tucked up in his old, decaying house on a cold Christmas Eve, lonely, curmudgeonly Scrooge hears the rattle of chains and strange wailing noises ...

... it's the ghost of his old business partner, Marley

And he's come to warn Scrooge that if he doesn't change his ways, he will suffer a terrible fate

Scrooge meets the three Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future and learns he must embrace the true spirit of Christmas before it's too late

Gary Owen's adaptation translates the novel's narrative fluently and portrays the Dickensian caricatures with flair and fun but not crudeness

He also refreshes the 1843 morality tale of ghosts, poverty, avarice and the redemptive power of compassion for a 21st century audience

"Gary Owen's new version of A Christmas Carol is an impressive adaptation for our times" ~ Guardian
