In the Bleak Midwinter: A Christmas Carol for Our Time - Virtual Event

Dallas Theater Center

The classic Christmas story reimagined in a world premiere film. A solitary man lies in a contemporary hospital bed, alone on Christmas Eve. As his life flashes before his eyes, he confronts the joys and sorrows of his past, present and future. As the timelines overlap, he re-experiences the exhilaration of falling in love, the bond of friendship, the pain of losing his sister, and the fear of what lies ahead in the afterlife. When the spirit of his best friend appears before him, Scrooge must make a choice between a renewed life or permanent damnation. Created specifically to be filmed under the unique circumstances of the pandemic (which restricts the size of the cast and eschews large scale musical numbers) this movie updates Charles Dickens’ story to our contemporary world, deepens our understanding of the beloved characters with compassion, humor and grace, and provides a holiday event to enjoy within the comfort of your own home.
