'A HUGELY IMAGINATIVE PRODUCTION'
Decmeber 2014 Old Red Lion
Ebenezer Scrooge is a man who has everything; a thriving business, a house of his own in a popular part of London and a pot of money large enough to keep all to himself.
Best of all, tonight is Christmas Eve, and he's about to be visited by his old friend Jacob Marley.
The only problem is that Marley is dead.
Dead as a door-nail.
Scrooge is about to be dragged against his will on a ride through the snowy and uncertain landscapes of Christmas' past, present and yet to come.
What is to be seen cannot be unseen.
You will be haunted by three spirits.
Expect the first tomorrow when the bell... tolls...
God bless us, every... One.
Dickens' classic story of ghosts, greed and goodwill is given boisterous new life in this chilling and contemporary production. With an all-singing, all-transforming ensemble, Metal Rabbit (Johnny Got His Gun, Fiesta) and director Gus Miller (The Picture of John Gray) bring you the ultimate Christmas story, unwrapped for today.
