The Hub just got the part of Scrooge in a local performance.

I’d love to go see him, but that play scares the Dickens out of me.

    Love Dickens at Christmas. I live in a “Christmas City” (truly.. Bethlehem, PA), and we are Christmas on steroids. Every year, Gerald Charles Dickens (great great grandson of the Original) visits here and does a one man show of the Christmas Carol. He is awesome. And it is so eerily cool when he walks out on stage. Charles Dickens (thru his gr gr grandson) is standing there!!

      Fascinating stuff!

      Funnily enough, after I read your comment, I read an article in our local paper about a Stockport man who flies out to Buffalo, NY, every Christmas to play Scrooge in a theatre there. I wonder how many more there are?

      But you have the edge with a real descendant 🙂

        This Gerald Dickens fellow is from London, I think.

    I don’t think they should have cast him as Scrooge. Father Christmas, perhaps….Dianne

    You have a place in punners’ heaven!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
