Publisher's Summary

On Christmas Eve, a traveler finds himself waiting out a snowstorm at the Holly Tree Inn. While passing the hours waiting for the weather to pass so his coach can continue its journey, the warm hearth of the inn brings his mind to roam to pass recollections, both happy and grave. He also ponders the true meaning of his current journey and reason for his melancholy: the woman he planned on marrying is, instead, going to marry his best friend. However, the delay at the inn is about to bring him a miraculous discovery. With a full cast, sound effects, and a majestic score by Jeffrey Gage, The Holly Tree Inn is the fifth Dickens Christmas story to be produced by the award-winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air.

Interesting and enjoyable

The acting was wonderful and the story was very different but still enjoyable. Dickens wrote so many different story’s, and this was a new one for me. I felt that he could have spent more time on the story and made it a little better. I felt the ending was very abrupt. The colonial Radio Players do a fantastic job as usual.

A Winter's Night Listen

An unusual play, just right for snuggling up on the dark winters days.

Well thought out production in old style radio but with that hint of Dickens atmosphere we all love to hear and feel. Just right for this week as it will be Christmas Eve in a few days.

A professional full cast to enjoy any time many times.
