A Christmas Carol is a story that has become a part of Christmas time for many of us. Whether it's the original novel by Charles Dickens or one of the many film adaptations, it is a well-known tale.

This play is about courage, determination, perseverance and the clash of two indomitable wills that come to terms with their own personal disabilities to heal their broken spirits.
Rules for Living is a dark comedy about family dysfunction and societal norms by Sam Holcroft.
