In this incredibly funny, witty, and touching holiday tale we bring back all your favorite characters, Scrooge, his nephew Fred, the Cratchits,Tiny Tim, Ms. Dilbert, the charity collector, Belle, Fan, and of course Jacob Marley and the Christmas Ghosts. Set in an 18th century courthouse, Scrooge sets out to sue Marley and the ghosts for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. Through various testimonies we get to re-experience some iconic Dickens lines as well as take a second look at the real reason Scrooge is visited that particular night.

Whether you have seen A Christmas Carol or are new to the Dickens’ tale you will truly be entertained by this fantastic story. While capturing the same heartfelt spirit Dickens intended, The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge will challenge you to look at that fateful Christmas Eve in a different light and rediscover the true spirit of Christmas!
