Adapted from the book by Charles Dickens
directed by Pete Parkin
In this adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale, a group of homeless people break into an abandoned theater on Christmas Eve to escape the cold. Looking around in hopes of finding some food or perhaps an old costume for warmth, one of them comes across a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
To take their minds off the cold and their dreary circumstances they decide to “act out” the story. Using things they find lying about the stage (an old door becomes Scrooge’s bed set upon some milk crates and the same door set on garbage cans becomes the Cratchit’s Christmas dinner table) they set about to tell this story.
An Adobe Christmas Carol opens Friday, November 22 through Sunday, December 22 at The Adobe Theater.
