A Christmas Carol

Directed by Deborah Hanna
It is a play about a cold-hearted miser, Ebeneezer Scrooge, who is visited by the ghost of his dead partner, Jacob Marley. During the night, three future spirits also appear to Scrooge, each holding a mirror to his behavior and highlighting the unhappiness resulting from his actions.

Video can be one minute monologue of your choice (please use a play script not film or TV) or you can use the monologue below:
It is required of every man, that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow-men, and travel far and wide; and if that spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. I cannot tell you all I would. A very little more is permitted to me. I cannot rest, I cannot stay, I cannot linger anywhere. My spirit never walked beyond our counting-house -- mark me! -- in life my spirit never roved beyond the narrow limits of our money-changing hole; and weary journeys lie before me . O blind man, blind man! not to know that ages of incessant labor by immortal creatures for this earth must pass into eternity before the good of which it is susceptible is all developed. Not to know that any Christian spirit working kindly in its little sphere, whatever it may be, will find its mortal life too short for its vast means of usefulness. Not to know that no space of regret can make amends for one life's opportunities misused! Yet I was like this man; I once was like this man!
