"A 95-MINUTE MASTERPIECE. BRILLIANTLY PERFORMED."
–The Philadelphia Inquirer

In this wonderfully clear and direct telling of Charles Dickens' beloved novella, acclaimed playwright and actor Anthony Lawton brings the story boldly to life with drama and frankness, in a manner Dickens himself would recognize from his dramatic readings during his own lifetime. Lawtonís compelling solo performance brings each character to life in a masterful combination of literature, theater, and film. Rediscover this timeless story of a miser's miraculous redemption from a life of bitterness, greed, and isolation. Now in its third year, this heartwarming adaptation has captured the hearts of audiences of all ages.

Running time is approximately 95 minutes.

This live performance was filmed on-site at St. Stephen's Theater in Center City Philadelphia, with strict adherence to all CDC, state, and local health and safety guidelines.
