December 6 – 15, 2013

The Dayton Playhouse will present the beautiful Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol story in a wonderful new adaptation titled, Fellow Passengers, opening Dec. 6 for two weekends.  This fresh adaptation was written by Greg Carter, director of the Strawberry Workshop in Seattle, Washington.  Fellow Passengers is a narrative version chock full of the beautiful language of Dickens’ original work.

According to Lockwood, “I was fortunate to find this beautifully written piece and was taken with it immediately. It has previously been produced only in Seattle, so we are happy to premier it in Dayton.  The play slips in and out of Dickens’ richly drawn characters and transports us adventurously through the old streets of London to witness Scrooge’s past, present and future.  This unique script is quite a challenge for even these three very talented actors.”
