The play takes place in a theatre in Rochester, England. Dickens has been called upon by the citizens of the community to write an adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" for the stage. To the surprise of everyone in town, Dickens not only intends to write the adaptation, but to star in it and direct it. On the other hand, Dickens is in for a surprise himself, because most of the men in the town are too busy with Christmas arrangements to participate in the play. It seems as though the play will have to be cancelled when a group of the ladies persuades Dickens to allow them to fill the roles that their husbands were to play.
