David Mynne : Charles Dickens : A Christmas Carol
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.
Adapted by Andrew McPherson.
Additional script by Simon Harvey and David Mynne.
David Mynne is a Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh.
“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.
It was incredible. He must know the book inside out! “God bless us, everyone”!
Excellent. Inventive and creative. Great fun.
Call that fun? Bah, Humbug!
