EBENEZER 2020: AN IMMERSIVE INTERNET SPECTACULAR
(an adaption of an adaption)
December 18 and 19, 7pm PST / 10pm EST / 0300 London / 1200 Japan
In 2014, The Speakeasy Society presented the smash hit Ebenezer, an immersive adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. To close out the tumultuous 2020 year, The Speakeasy society has adapted that adaptation into a new holiday internet spectacular that translates the free roaming exploration of the original Ebenezer to a new, virtual format.
Audiences are encouraged to create an intimate relationship with the story, characters, and environment: Play charades with Scrooge’s nephew Fred, make holiday cocktails with the Ghost of Christmas Present, stare into the abyss with the Ghost of Christmas Future, or follow Ebenezer's journey as he confronts his own mortality and greed. Can he alter these shadows of what may be, or will he wear the chains he forged in life for all eternity?
In the spirit of A Christmas Carol, we are donating all proceeds from this event to Mutual Aid LA, mutualaidla.org, an organization providing grocery, supply deliveries, and community support services in Los Angeles.
Suitable for audiences 14 and up.
