Otford Players

Entertaining Otford since 1975

Synopsis

 

It is 2 days before Christmas in the village of Otford, circa 1880, and there are big problems in the church.

A crack has appeared in the crypt and for the last

18 months or more the village has been infested with mischievous spirits and ghosts.

 

A fund has been set up to have the crypt corrected, but except for a few serious benefactors it is a slow process! The vicar is doing his best and has drafted in some help.

Meanwhile the devious Ebenezer Scrooge is up to his usual tricks alongside his downtrodden assistant Scatchitt, but a visitor has arrived in the village and he could prove to be an interesting

match for old Ebenezer!
