Scrooge and Marley

Wed 9th – Sat 12th Nov 2011


“Two actors give life to a sprawling ensemble of Dickensian grotesques. A spirited retelling of the classic ghost story.”





Cambridge University Marlowe Dramatic Society


London, 1843. Marley has lain dead for seven years, mouldering in his grave and burning in the netherworld beyond. Old Scrooge sits festering in his counting-house, accumulating his money by the light of a single coal. At the stroke of twelve, Scrooge and Marley go head to head, hurtling across time and space as they battle it out for redemption... There has never been a telling of A Christmas Carol quite like this. Join two of Cambridge’s most eccentric character actors as they give life to a sprawling ensemble of Dickensian grotesques. From undertakers to charwomen, petty thieves to vulpine orphans, kindly philanthropists to the spectre of Death himself – here is Dickens’s supreme masterpiece in all of its rollicking carnival glory. At once a terrifying ghost story, a delightful comedy and a triumphant reminder of man’s power to change, this enchanting modern fairytale is not to be missed.
