Ebenezer 2021

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

In 2014, The Speakeasy Society presented the smash hit Ebenezer, an immersive adaptation of Charles Dickens’ "A Christmas Carol". To close out the tumultuous 2021 year, The Speakeasy Society adapted that adaptation into a holiday internet spectacular that translated the free roaming exploration of the original Ebenezer to a virtual format.

Audiences were encouraged to have fun while exploring this classic holiday story and familiar characters in a new way: They could play charades with Scrooge’s nephew Fred, have a beer with Bob Cratchit, stare into the abyss with the Ghost of Christmas Future, or follow Ebenezer's journey as he confronted 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, all profits from this event were donated to Mutual Aid LA, an organization providing grocery, supply deliveries, and community support services in Los Angeles.
