Marley's Christmas

by Jeff Goode & Jonathan Price

Original Concert Reading
Unknown Theater, Los Angeles, May 2006

Based on the critically-acclaimed stage play, Marley's Christmas tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge's late partner Jacob Marley, a miser more miserable than Scrooge himself. Seven years before Ebenezer would come to learn the true meaning of Christmas, Old Jacob wakes from a night of excruciating stomach pangs to find himself standing in an open grave, haunted by the ghosts of his own, past present and future. Doomed to an afterlife of guilt over the wrongs he's done to those he should have loved, Marley learns that his only chance of saving them is to choose between eternal damnation ... and letting his murderer go free...
