Christmas Play













It's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are now broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, NJ, and set to present their contemporary "take" on Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Whether it's the noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, begins to connect his own life with that of the classic Dickens tale. Will it be possible to "save the show," by improvising an ending to Charles Dickens' classic as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale? Will music save the night? Come find out for yourself in this delightful holiday treat that seamlessly combines drama and comedy, heartbreak and hope.
