A Christmas Carol by Patrick Barlow

Performance nights Tuesday 13 - Saturday 17 December 2022

Patrick Barlow, writer of the Broadway and West End hit The 39 Steps, has retold Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. This thrilling adaptation uses only five actors to bring some of Dickens' most beloved characters to life. From Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig, Barlow's A Christmas Carol uses nothing more than some simple props, fresh physicality, and the power of imagination to convey this timeless story of redemption. Witness Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation from a stingy miser to a man who generously celebrates the spirit of the season all year long, in this highly theatrical adaptation
Cast: 5 actors, 1 male playing Scrooge, 4 actors playing all the other characters, 2 on stage non speaking roles.
2 Stage managers, technical and continuity.
