Enjoy a unique performance of A Christmas Carol this season. All monies raised will benefit Partera’s peacemaking work.
Travel back in time to Ebenezer Scrooge’s counting house on a cold, foggy, Christmas Eve. This one-man-show is written by and performed by award-winning English actor, Jeffrey Cottam. Acclaimed Canadian composer and musician, Bruce Ley, will play live musical accompaniment. This multi-media experience also includes special effects, lighting, and sounds.
Charles Dickens was a social justice activist. His famous stories raised public consciousness about the failures of government to redistribute wealth to the poorest. In our modern era, poverty and inequity continue to ignite conflict around the world.
Partera works with people on the front lines of violent conflict, training communities with a proven methodology that gives them the peacemaking skills they need to build the future they yearn for.
Partera is the Spanish word for midwife. Celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace by supporting Partera’s work as we midwife for peace around the world!

Please express to Jeff my sheer delight with his one man show last night here in Ottawa. It was a dramatic romp through Dickens’ classic tale that was greatly enjoyed by our son and 4 of our grandchildren. It was a bold undertaking that was excellent in every way, from the set to lighting, to the wonderful music by Bruce and your brief explanation of the work you do internationally. Thanks from both Rhoda and myself for this excellent effort.
All the best of this season to you both and your family and friends.
Jeff, Bruce, Lee Ann: Thank you for coming to town and igniting our festive season with heart-grabbing artistry, empathy for people who suffered in 1843 as today, hope for the future, and musical synapses to ignite all the parts. Very many people have told us how they were touched by what they learned of Partera, plus the performance, and the music.
