Local theater lovers have the chance to support Kanawha Players and also see a humorous and touching Christmas play this weekend. A Christmas Carol…more or less can be seen Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3 at 7:30 PM at the Historic Labelle Theater on D Street in South Charleston.
This soap-opera/farce take on the Charles Dickens classic is a show-within-a-show as Sarah and Charlie, a married couple who run a small theatre that’s presenting A Christmas Carol run into a series of major problems.
Charlie shows up backstage to say the cast and crew are snowed out. Charlie is planning to split up with Sarah tonight, but he’s snowed in. Sarah, furious, capitalizes on Charlie’s remarkable memory, and blackmails him into doing the play with her as a duo, relying on scripts when they need to.
He plays Scrooge; she plays everyone else. As the performance proceeds, Charlie gets drawn back into his relationship with Sarah. They actually manage to perform much of the play, with their personal story invading the Dickens tale, informing it with dual levels of meaning
