People love a good redemption story, and A Christmas Carol is no exception. While it would be easier to keep things the same from season to season, Trinity Rep re-imagines Dickens’ classic play each year so that no two productions are alike. Grab the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge in your life and treat him to a night of theatre magic: We bet even he will have a hard time finding something to complain about.
