About the Show/Event
Information for A Christmas Carol at Alma Tavern Theatre, Bristol (One person show). A Christmas Carol is the most famous book Charles Dickens ever wrote and one of the most daring. As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges the reader cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house in the City to riotous festivities, from cozy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present. This Festive masterpiece adapted from the original text and inspired by Dickens public readings has one actor re-enact every notable character from this haunting, moving timeless story.
