About Estella Scrooge
"Estella Scrooge is an ambitious and exciting production that, in technical terms, takes lockdown theatre far beyond anything that this critic has seen so far. Not only that, but the underlying script and score are both of the highest quality, making this hot favourite to become the best new online theatre presentation since physical venues first closed their doors last March."

Estella Scrooge (Wolfe) is a young Wall Street tycoon with a penchant for foreclosing. A hotelier in her hometown of Pickwick, Ohio has defaulted on his mortgage and Estella fancies the idea of lowering the boom personally. Arriving at Harthouse on Christmas Eve, Estella discovers that the defaulting party is her childhood sweetheart, Pip Nickleby (Duncan). A freak snowstorm forces Estella to take refuge. That night, just as it happened to her ancestor Ebenezer, she is haunted by three visitations…and oh, what uninvited houseguests they are!
