It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
Happy Christmas, folks! Thanks for dropping by to see the latest offering from the theater. Fionn has been working super hard to get things back on track while gearing up some new productions. Being that it is the holidays, our new director has chosen a great work that we’re all familiar with (or should be). Let’s see which passage he’s going to tape for the blog…
The Project Gutenberg EBook of A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens
“Old Marley was as dead as a doornail.
Mind! I don’t mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a doornail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country’s done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a doornail.”
