By Mark Brown. Directed by Janet Clark.
The continuation of Dickens’s Christmas story sees Scrooge one year after he learned the lesson of goodwill to all.
Now the setting is a court of law, where he has sued the ghosts for kidnapping, breaking and entering, trespassing, stalking and emotional distress.
This is a family comedy which ends with an ingenious moral twist.
The action takes place in a London courtroom on Christmas Eve 1844.
