Production synopsis Mark the 150th Anniversary of the death of the great Charles Dickens with his most famous tale and the original Christmas ghost story.

A handful of actors create over twenty different characters on stage using music, puppetry, live sound effects, quick-fire costume changes and just a hint of pantomime.

This adaptation brings the timeless tale to life with all the wit, flair and theatrical invention expected of the playwright, Patrick Barlow (The 39 Steps, GWT 2019).
