«Bah, Humbug!,» and «God Bless us, every one!» Who does not recognize the exclamations made famous by Scrooge and Tiny Tim in Charles Dickens' beloved Christmas Carol? Charles Dickens wrote his novella over the course of six weeks during the fall of 1843, in part in response to the appalling living and working conditions of the urban poor during his time, especially children. Romulus Linney's adaptation preserves most of Dickens' language and text and sets the story squarely in the mid-nineteenth century London where it originated.
Directed by Darren McGregor and Rina Steinhauer, produced by Kristine Smets, the play, like the novella, is full of wit and satire, vivid and immediate. And they also hope the audience will be reminded that Dickens' issues, such as homelessness, educational reform, prison conditions, are still ours.
A Christmas Carol cast includes many well-known faces from Memorial Players' past musicals and drama. Set design is by John Seeley, costumes by Tita Rutlegde, props by Maggie Blanck, light and sound design by Daryl Beard, and poster by Lynne Menefee.
As always, A Christmas Carol is admission-free (good will donations are always welcome), and presented at Memorial Church at the corner of Lafayette and Bolton streets.
