"Marley was dead, to begin with.” Well, we all know that from seeing countless versions of Dickens’ holiday classic A Christmas Carol. But what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge's mean, sour, pruned old business partner after that? This play tells it all!
Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He's even given his own private tormentor: a malicious and hilarious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge's heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley—in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story—discovers his own.
Join us for a truly Trustus-style holiday offering where four actors take the stage to tell the untold story of Jacob Marley in a night of unforgettable theatrical delight!
