|The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge
a comedy in two acts by Mark Brown
directed by Marjorie Megivern
American Legion Hall
55 East Jordan St., Brevard
December 12 - December 21, 2008
The play takes place in a courtroom. One year after his miraculous
transformation in A Christmas Carol, Scrooge slips back into his old ways.
He has decided to sue Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past,
Present and Future for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and
suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional
distress. They employ Solomon Rothschild, England's most charismatic,
savvy and clever barrister, to defend them against these charges.
Ebenezer, that old penny pincher, represents himself.
It seems certain that Scrooge has reverted to his old disagreeable self.
Can the spirit of Christmas survive?
If laughter and goodwill are any indication, Christmas is here to stay!
This award-winning holiday comedy is a treat for people of all ages.
Talkin' Broadway called the show "A delighful new holiday tradition."
The Seattle Times said it was "A sequel worthy of Dickens' approval."
This production will open Brevard Little Theatre's 2008-2009 Season (the
59th) and will be staged at BLT's new venue in the American Legion Hall,
55 East Jordan Street, in downtown Brevard.
