Cambridgeshire County Council's Library Service will welcome Librarian Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol this December. The production re-imagines the character of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as a female, played by Sarah Ratheram, who is visited by the spirits of her late partner Jacob Marley of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.
The story is told by three narrators, who step in and out of these and the many other characters in the play, using puppetry and audience interaction to bring the timeless tale to life in the library.
A Christmas Carol remains popular, having never been out of print, and has been adapted many times to film, stage, opera, and other media.
