JACOB MARLEY'S CHRISTMAS CAROL Comes to Marin Theatre, 11/21-12/15
Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol by Tom Mula will be presented by Marin Theatre Company, directed by Jon Tracy (It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play) and featuring Khris Lewin (A Steady Rain), Rami Margron (debut), Nicholas Pelczar (The Whipping Man) and Stacy Ross (God of Carnage), November 21 - December 15, 2013.
Perfect for the whole family, this festive ghost story opens as does Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, with Old Marley dead ("as a door-nail"). However, the focus never leaves his chained and burdened soul, remaining in the ethereal planes of the afterlife.
Given just 24 hours to redeem himself, Jacob Marley scrambles to reform his former partner in greed - that "squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner" Ebenezer Scrooge. This is going to be one long night... of spirited fun!
