Event Notes


Charles Dickens wrote a short story that has become one of the most adapted pieces of literature in history. The story of Scrooge is well known, but what about Marley? How did his haunting afterlife begin? In his version of the carol, Marley is escorted by a spritely creature along the pathway to redeeming his soul - by helping to save the one man on earth who was more greedy and sour than himself. We come to find that self sacrifice can make a difference in the end.
