A Christmas Carole (Michelmas, 2021)

carole poster

First | Previous | Latest

A Christmas Carole is an original modern spin on the Dickens classic. This time it’s not just the famous miser Ebeneezer Scrooge who is visited by night-time apparitions – his self-centred and irritatingly Christmassy niece Carole also meets some instructive spirits of her own! Each embarks on their own ghostly voyage of self-discovery, but disaster strikes when nefarious ghouls fool Tiny Tim and the rest of Bob Scratchit’s children on a foolish mission to save Christmas, leaving hilarious chaos and ghost bureaucracy in their wake…
