Coshocton Footlight Players presents Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, by Tom Mula. Perfect for the whole family, the play opens as does Charles Dickens’ classic, with Old Marley dead “as a door-nail”. However, in this tale, the focus never leaves Marley’s chained and burdened soul, and the audience stays with Marley and his guide in the unearthly planes of the afterlife. Given just 24 hours to redeem himself, Jacob Marley scrambles to reform his former partner in greed – that “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner” Ebenezer Scrooge.
Jacob Marley appears on December 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, and 17. For tickets, call 740- 622-2959 between 7:00 and 9:00.
