Ghost Stories for Christmas
Information for Ghost Stories for Christmas at Theatre Royal, York (Play). Shutter up the windows, dim the candles, and settle by the fire for a Christmas ghost story, told by no less a master than Charles Dickens. Here are three of Dickens' Christmas ghost stories: not only A Christmas Carol, but The Chimes and The Haunted Man. Their words unlock a world teeming with goblin-infested bells - with dark and shadowy doubles - with Ghosts of Christmases Past and Present and Yet To Come. These tales chill the marrow and tickle the funny bone, but always they enchant, as only the works of a master storyteller can. The ghost stories are performed by James Swanton, who took Dickens to the West End's Trafalgar Studios in the acclaimed Sikes & Nancy ('fantastical... remarkable... startling and enthralling' - Simon Callow) and has also performed all five of the Christmas Books at London's Charles Dickens Museum ('extraordinary... superb... it couldn't have been more vivid!' - Miriam Margolyes). James won Outstanding Performing Artist in the 2018 York Culture Awards, and his previous season of Dickens at York Medical Society enjoyed sell-out success. This promises to be a seasonal treat like no other. For these ghost stories are the very spirit of Christmas: enchanting, exuberant, and ultimately redemptive. One ghost story is told each night - Dec 17,19,21 Dec A Christmas Carol. 18 Dec The Chimes. 20 Dec The Haunted Man.
Performers James Swanton.
