Additional text by Simon Harvey and David Mynne
Joy to all mankind? Bah!
Spend an evening with Ebenezer Scrooge: a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, clutching, covetous, old miser. Bah!
Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts (wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. Bah!
Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. Bah!
In their inimitable style, the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey will now take you on a grim (sort of) journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London.
This is Dickens’ original words with added silliness. Silliness? Bah!
Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol. Bah!
Now with extra Humbug!
"A Christmas Carol was beautiful - apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens! He is a genius.”
Richard Wolfenden-Brown: Director The Plough Arts Centre
