Long before Scrooge there was Gabriel Grub, the gravedigger. From Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, this eerie tail is a perfect compliment to the Christmas Carol story or a wonderful stand-alone Gothic holiday play. Enough parts for an entire class, or double up roles and stage it with as few as twelve. Suitable for reader's theater or a full stage production. Use it with grades 5 and up. (Warning: it may be too scary for younger students). Fully reproducible: original purchaser is licensed to print a class set each year for use in his or her own classroom.
