Condemned to a shackled eternity, Jacob Marley’s spirit is given one chance to change his fate and escape his eternal chains – by returning to the world he scorned one Christmas Eve night to redeem his old business partner, Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart is indeed opened, but not before Marley – in this irreverent, funny, and moving tale – discovers his own in this delightful twist on the iconic Dickens classic.
