Christmas Gathering: ‘Ebenezer’ served with Mulled Wine

The Break-Away Readings Act V

The Break-Away Project presented their Christmas gathering 2013: Joseph Zettelmaier’s ‘Ebenezer’ served with Mulled Wine

Guests joined us for an intimate evening filled with festive theatre and warm refreshments.

“It’s a cold Christmas Eve in London, and Ebenezer Scrooge sits in a hospital room. 15 years have passed since his miraculous transformation by the Ghosts of Christmas. Now renowned for his generosity and selflessness, his spirit still yearns to bring cheer to the world, but his flesh is weak. Such a little thing isn’t likely to stop the old man, though, for he has a plan up his sleeve that he hasn’t shared with his two troubled companions – Miss Poole, the nurse assigned to his care, and Tim Cratchit, recently returned from war in America. Over the course of the evening, these two lost souls bear witness to events they do not fully understand as the spirit of Christmas descends on Ebenezer once again.”
