A Christmas Carol

Date: 8th-11th December 2021

Location: Theatre

Synopsis: We all know – don’t we – that the Victorians actually invented Christmas (sort of): horses steaming and wheezing in gas-lit streets; snow (lots of it!) top hats, muffins and ragamuffins; destitution and luxury; plum pudding; sizzling geese in sizzling ovens . . . you all know the rest. It’s all ‘Humbug!’, of course, isn’t it? Well, according to the scraping, scratching, tight-fisted Ebenezer Scrooge it certainly is. But an encounter with a spooky door-knocker, three spirits, and a terrifying gravestone makes this grasping, anti-social, mercenary, granite-hearted skinflint think twice!

Come and be chilled to the bone and warmed to the heart!
