‘The Hit and Miss Theatre Company is in need a of a good Christmas show. Bums on seats, festive cheer, moral fable: A Christmas Carol! Tick. Except there’s a new artistic director in town with new ideas. And Dickens has been done every decade in living memory. The heart and soul of the company are up for grabs as the battle wages between tried and true vs daring and new.’

The play is contemporary and no accents are required.

The script has received accolades from 3 professional American companies:

Finalist, New Comedies Festival, B Street Theatre, 2020
Semi-Finalist, Headwaters Festival, Creede Repertory Theatre, 2020
Semi-finalist, Dreamcatcher Repertory, 2021

This will be the Victorian premiere.
