The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge

20th - 23rd November 2019

St. Barnabas Church, Southfields, SW18 5EP

The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge’ picks up a year after the disagreeable Scrooge has changedhis ways due to the visitation of three spirits: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future. A year after his transformation, Scrooge contends that he was kidnapped and tricked into being a changed man for the year following Christmas. As a result, Scrooge draws up a whole list of criminal charges: breaking and entering, kidnapping, attempted murder and theft and acts as the prosecuting attorney in the trial, opposite the compassionate defence attorney, Elizabeth Rothschild, who represents all of the accused. During the proceedings, several witnesses contribute their account of the story that is in some way contradicted by Scrooge. There are also characters that cause Scrooge’s confidence to temporarily disappear. After all the testimonies were given, Judge Pearson declares that the three ghosts and Jacob Marley (Scrooge’s deceased associate) are “guilty of all said charges”, after which he calls for a “termination of all their ghostly duties.” The ghosts’ careers are saved when Scrooge drops the charges based on the agreement that the ghosts carry out the Christmas spirit every day in addition to Christmas.
