A Dickensian Christmas

Adapted from the works of Charles Dickens and his contemporaries

1869, Victorian London. The household staff of 48 Doughty Street gather on Christmas Eve for a tradition long carried out, but seldom spoke about. That is until the arrival of an unexpected visitor in the winter cold. All he wants is a room for the night, and in return, he’ll entertain with his finest festive stories. But what’s the catch?


A Dickensian Christmas is a festive story-telling romp through some of English literature's most loved Christmas fables, poetry and music from Dickens to Hans Christen Anderson.


Developed and devised through a method of creative discovery through improvisation, A Dickensian Christmas promises to be an evening of inventive and imaginative story telling. Over 40 wide and varying characters will be portrayed by a cast of 4, in this festive story telling rollercoaster through the ages.

Running Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes (No interval)

Suitable for all ages.

Reviews

If there is a more perfect Christmas treat this year, then I will be very surprised.

Invention, originality, insight and high standards of production are all marks of this show and I cannot remember when I felt so comforted and cosy watching a performance.
