Pier Pressure Productions presents a staged reading of Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol by Tom Mula.
The performances are Friday evening, December 13 at 7:15 p.m., Saturday evening, December 14, 7:15 p.m., Sunday afternoon, December 15 at 4:15 p.m. on the TEN-FIFTEEN stage, 1015 Commercial Street, Astoria.

The story: “Marley was dead, to begin with…”—and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge’s mean, sour, old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He’s even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley—in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story—discovers his own.
