A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Adapted and Directed by Amy Wyllie, designed by Becca Gibbs.
“If I could work my will, every idiot who goes about with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart!”
Miserly humbug, Ebenezer Scrooge, has no time for Christmas. But as the clock strikes midnight his world is turned upside-down. A visit from his long-dead business partner, Jacob Marley, propels Scrooge on a helter-skelter night of visions of his happy past, harsh present and horrific future.
This December, Spinning Wheel Theatre’s atmospheric and quirky adaptation of Charles Dickens’ treasured Christmas classic hits the road across East Anglia. With much-loved characters Bob Cratchit, good old Fezziwig, Tiny Tim and, of course, the old humbug himself brought to life by three actors and a whole host of puppets, this timeless ghost-story is the perfect way to enjoy some festive cheer at a venue near you!
