A Carol Dickens Christmas
Thursday, December 21st at 9pm CT, and Sunday, December 24th at 1pm CT

It's Christmas, and Carol Dickens's life is in major transition.

Her son Finn, a talented trumpet player, is about to leave for college. Her ex-husband, a real-estate wheeler-dealer, wants to sell their properties in Kansas and move to Arizona. Her wheelchair-bound friend, Laurence, has fallen in love with her. To top it all off, Scraps, the family dog, is dying. As her world spins out of control, Carol seeks refuge in her research on the use of the semicolon--and in her ritual of cooking the perfect series of Victorian holiday meals inspired by A Christmas Carol.

The production’s writer and reader, Thomas Fox Averill, is an O. Henry Award Winner and retired writer-in-residence and Professor of English at Washburn University of Topeka, Kansas. He has published five novels, including A Carol Dickens Christmas.

Tune into the two-hour broadcast at one of the two times it'll air during the 2023 holiday:

Thursday, 12/21 @ 9pm CT
Sunday, 12/24 @ 1pm CT
