A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong
The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society hijack a BBC production of A Christmas Carol.
Following their disastrous production of 'Peter Pan' the Cornley Polytechnic amateur dramatic society have been banned from participating in this year's 'A Christmas Carol' with Derek Jacobi. However the enthusiastic amateurs, undeterred, nobble Sir Derek and the other cast members to stage their own version. There is dissent in the company when Chris and Robert both want to play Scrooge whilst nervous Dennis as Bob Cratchit has to read all his lines off prop and Annie gets glued to her chair. When Lucy's Tiny Tim is knocked out by falling scenery the hulking Robert rather improbably must replace her. With faulty green screen special effects and a seeming romantic betrayal exposed the company's version seems doomed until Sandra's Aunt Diana comes to the rescue.
