Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol in the mid-19th century.
Since then, the Christmas tale has become engrained in our everyday culture. There’s been film adaptations, operas, and countless stage versions of the story.
The name "Scrooge" has even become a term in our language, as a description for someone who is miserly.
But popularity comes with it’s downsides. For one, audiences know the story so well, they can forget the greater meaning of it. And elaborate set designs and huge casts can be distracting.
And that’s why for Parallel 45 Theatre Company, less is more when it comes to this Christmas classic.
