A two-part original comedic take on the classic tale of "A Christmas Carol". Set in a modern era (that still uses coal to heat the office), we follow a night in miser Ebenezer Scrooge's life, that takes him back through time so that he can understand the true meaning of christmas. From a Haitian Voodoo narrator, to a strangely Reinfield-like version of Bob Cratchit, this eccentric version provides a decidedly different take on the story.

Pt. 1 Details just up to Scrooge meeting the Ghost of Christmas Past.-45 minutes 
Pt. 2 Finishes with Scrooge meeting the Ghost of Christmas Past, up to the surprise ending.-30 min

Features most of the regular Drama Hour cast, with appearances from members if improv troupe "You Had To Be There".
