Sarah and Charlie, a married couple, run a small theatre that is presenting A Christmas Carol — until Charlie shows up backstage to say the cast and crew are snowed out. Capitalizing on Charlie’s remarkable memory, Sarah blackmails him into doing the play with her as a duo, relying on scripts when they need to. He plays Scrooge; she plays everyone else. As the performance proceeds, they actually manage to perform much of the play, with their personal story invading the Dickens tale, informing it with dual levels of meaning.
