Other Christmas Performances

The Day After A Christmas Carol
Enopion Theatre
The story goes that Ebenezer Scrooge had a night of “ghostly” visitations the evening before Christmas Day. It supposedly changed his mind about what Christmas really meant and on Christmas Day he visited the home of his nephew and family.  It was a wonderful celebration as they dined on Christmas dinner and shared memories of days gone by. It truly seemed that Ebenezer had changed his mind, but had his heart been changed?

Our setting is the day after Christmas and we will soon see if that night of “ghostly” visitations had done the trick or if it is going to take another night of sleeplessness for our Mr. Scrooge and visitation by another ghost — The Holy Ghost.
