A Christmas Carol

David Mynne Booking Info

Joy to all mankind? Bah!

David Mynne, veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh, returns to Dorset with a one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

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.

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! Humbug!

Suitable for adults and older children (9+)


“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.”

Director The Plough Arts Centre

An Update on Attending Rural Touring Events by Artsreach

Our community volunteers, audiences, funders and sponsors have been simply fantastic during these difficult times, and we thank everyone for their support and encouragement as we resume our indoor programme of live performances this winter.

We want to let you know that your comfort and safety continue to be our top priority, as well as your enjoyment of course. As such, we have created a simple information document about our indoor events and venues, which we will monitor and update throughout the season as required. Read our latest information document here
