Ebeneezer Scrooge is the richest property developer in Belfast. And the most tight fisted. He knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. Not for him the false bonhomie and forced jollity of the Christmas season. Scrooge has money to make; his latest batch of hastily built and poorly finished apartments are going on sale on Boxing Day and so what if people have to camp out on the street to try and get on the list for one? It’s their funeral. Why should Scrooge change his plans because of Christmas! Even poor Bob Cratchitt is only getting one day’s leave (unpaid).

But Scrooge has an unsettling visit from his former business partner Jacob Marley. Unsettling because Marley has been dead for ten years. He warns that Scrooge will be haunted by three more really scary-biscuit spirits, who will show him the error of his ways. And sing him a few scary songs. And one of them does this really really scary dance.

Will Scrooge change and repent of his greed? Will he help the poor and destitute and become a better man? Or will he remain the same old capitalist pig that he always has been? After all, it was probably just a creepy oul dream.
