Did you know?
As a child, Charles Dickens spent a short time in a debtors' prison with his family. Years after his family's release, Dickens was deeply troubled by society's indifference toward the poor. He once wrote, "London is a place where half the people live without ever knowing how the other half dies."

Join us on December 27th. Make a difference. Help us transform despair into hope through the ministries of Episcopal Charities and Community Services and its ministry partners.

Together, weCHARLES DICKENS share the common mission of transforming lives. CELEBRATING OUR FAMILY This special performance of “A Christmas Carol” is an opportunity to recognize and thank ‘family’ members who help make our extraordinary work possible: the board members, volunteers, donors, staff, and others from Episcopal Charities and our ministry partners. WHY “A CHRISTMAS CAROL”? As a child, Charles Dickens spent a short time in a debtors prison with his family. Years after his family’s release, Dickens was deeply troubled by society’s indifference toward the poor. He once wrote, “London is a place where half the people live without ever knowing how the other half dies.” ADAPTED BY TOM CREAMER DIRECTED BY STEVE SCOTT Dickens considered using his national fame as an author to address this lack of compassion through letters to Parliament but, instead, in 1843 he poured his passion into the writing of “A Christmas Carol.” This beloved story follows the transformation of miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge after the spirits of Christmas past,The Goodman Theatre present, and future confront him with the humanity of what he regarded as “the surplus population.”170 N.
