The love story from “Great Expectations” and the ghost story from “A Christmas Carol” are combined with a pop-rock score in this Dickensian Mashup. Estella Scrooge, a Wall Street tycoon and direct descendant of Ebenezer, travels to Pickwick, Ohio on Christmas Eve to foreclose on The Harthouse Hotel, a haven for the lost, lonely and dispossessed. There she finds herself drawn to the attractive proprietor Philip Nickleby whom she once knew as a child.
