Event Description


DAVID MYNNE performs Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Joy to all mankind? Bah!

Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching 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 (Greek stuff!) will now take you on a grim journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London, where Ignorance and Want cower together.

Dickens’ original words combined with anarchic comedy. Comedy? Bah!

Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Bah! And Bah!

Suitable for adults and older children (8+)

Directed by Simon Harvey
Performed by David Mynne

“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
