A DICKINS CHRISTMAS

by Barry Dickins

A DICKIN'S CHRISTMAS is a boisterous re-interpretation of Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL set in Melbourne in the mid 1950's. Jack Gruel presides over the Maudlin Theatre Company counting his pennies as he brings British Theatre to the Antipodes. His company though is frustrated by his slavish devotion to another culture. One has the temerity to attempt writing an Australian play much to Jack's amused astonishment. But then along come three spirits who show Jack a different way and convince him it is time to change. A Dickin's Christmas is a musical celebration of some rumblings in our theatre from the not-too-distant past.
