David Mynne: “A Christmas Carol”
Kneehigh Theatre favourite & co-founder Dave Mynne, last seen in Kneehigh's Fup, playing Grandad, now takes on Charles Dickens' perennial much-loved Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol.
Joy to all mankind?
Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser.
Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts(wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last.
Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets.
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.
Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol.
Suitable for adults and older children (10+)
Directed by Simon Harvey.
Performed by David Mynne.
Adapted by Andrew McPherson.
Additional script by Simon Harvey and David Mynne.
David Mynne is a Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh Theatre.
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.
What the audience said:
“Just brilliant! We loved The Odyssey and this was even better. Thank you!"
"Incredible performance... and by one man! Very enjoyable for kids, parents and grumpy dads!"
"Absolutely the best show I’ve seen this year."

Fun? Call that fun? Bah, Humbug!"
