About this show

A Christmas Carol is the most famous book Charles Dickens ever wrote and one of the most daring. As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges the reader cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house in the City to riotous festivities, from cozy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present.

Dickens' mystical Christmas fable is brought to life by Olivier Award-winner Guy Masterson, veteran of smash hit solo shows including Under Milk Wood and Animal Farm (both recent sell-outs at Salisbury Playhouse). Famed for bringing multiple characters to vivid life, Masterson recreates Scrooge, Marley, the Fezziwigs, Tiny Tim and more in an enchanting performance that will dazzle and linger long in the memory. Guaranteed to get you into the Christmas Spirit - in many more ways than one!
