A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Karen Louise Hebden
Saturday 7 December – Saturday 14 December 2019
Playhouse2, 2 Newtown Street, Shaw.
Charles Dickens’ timeless classic is brought to life in a joyous adaptation by Karen Louise Hebden.
One bitter Christmas Eve, a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts. Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to, and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?
All the iconic moments are here from this timeless epic, and we have gone to great lengths to find the most miserable "Baa Humbug" actor we can find and stuffed him full of Christmas Spirits.
