Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol by Tom Mula
"Marley was dead, to begin with"and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge's mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He's even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge's heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marleyin this irreverent, funny and deeply moving storydiscovers his own.
"Nothing less than an anthem to human nature, to imagination, and to the wonder of a compelling story told by a wondrous storytelleramong the best evenings of the theatrical yearAs the tale slips down the throat like a hot chocolate, it also reveals new truths about the human conditionin Mula's warm and inviting hands, Marley becomes a tortured but poignant and ultimately redeemed soul who personally stage-manages Scrooge's reformation and finds his own redemption thereinan inspired and moving story that makes all that old stuff about ghosts and graves seem both immediate and revelatorya splendid and invigorating evening!"
