Using only Charles Dickens' extraordinary words and a chameleon ensemble of eight actors, Neil Bartlett's A Christmas Carol brings a boldly theatrical imagination to bear on a classic story. Gets right to the frozen heart of Dickens' classic Christmas tale ...one of those rare festive offerings for which adult will need the excuse of a child in tow. -- The Guardian
Charles Dickens is one of the greatest and most widely read of novelists writing in English. Great Expectations is only one of some fifteen novels, all of whose titles are common currency and all of which have been repeatedly dramatized for stage, screen and radio.
