A Christmas Carol, Radio Play

Minneapolis playwright Barbara Field’s adaptations of A Christmas Carol are part of Spokane Civic Theatre’s DNA. We first produced her rich and delightful take on Mr. Dicken’s tale in the late 1970s, under the artful direction of the legendary Dorothy Darby Smith, one of our Founders. Dorothy, and later others, would continue to direct Barbara’s adaptations for many, many holiday seasons, and this included a streamlined version used in later years. Now, at Civic’s request, Barbara, 87-years-young, is back with an updated script that she has authorized us to share with the Spokane community this holiday season in collaboration with Spokane Public Radio.
