A Christmas Carol

David MynneThis event has now finished

A festive treat, adapted by David specifically for online enjoyment!

A Christmas Carol was first devised and performed in 2017, by veteran Cornish actor and founder member of Kneehigh, David Mynne, and Director Simon Harvey. A Christmas Carol is David’s second piece of work by Charles Dickens. The show has toured nationally, every December, since then with several sell-out performances here in Dorset. This Christmas we are thrilled to have worked alongside David and Pageant Productions to bring the show to life online!

You can also catch David live on tour with the stage show in Cornwall - find out more here.

A Christmas Carol

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 this mesmerising online performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol. Bah! Now with extra Humbug!

Suitable for ages 9+
