In Copenhagen in 2005, Vibeke Wrede’s vital version of Charles Dicken’s sad, loving, festive and traditional classic was a big success at the Folketeatret. Ebenezer Scrooge lives an isolated life accompanied by his beloved money. His partner is dead – and Scrooge’s only connection to the outside world died with him. Consequently, he only visits the outside world when travelling to and from work. When Christmas arrives, carrying its message about charity and generosity, Scrooge becomes even more insulted and callous. Whilst the poor people of London are destroyed by hunger and impoverishment right outside his window, he continues his bitter life as a loner - despite the tireless efforts of his office assistant, who attempts to reach out to the man behind the facade. Only the spirits of Christmas can get through to Scrooge. He is put up against a wall, finally realising that he must make radical changes in his life if he wish to avoid leaving this world a very lonely, hated and bitter soul.
