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.
