Adapted and performed by James Hyland
Music by Chris Warner
In celebration of the 175th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’, join us at The Alban Arena this festive season for a special performance of James Hyland’s award-winning stage adaptation. Told from the perspective of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, this ground-breaking theatrical event has been hailed as the “definitive telling of A Christmas Carol” (Redditch Standard), and rated as one of “the top Christmas shows in London, Edinburgh and around the UK” (High 50 Culture). Recognised by The Queen for its part in Dickensian Scholarship, this “forcefully compelling masterpiece” (Manx Independent) delivers thrills, chills and excitement aplenty for all ages.
Jacob Marley is dead and condemned to an eternity of carrying a heavy chain, forged in life; a life to which he can no longer return except to recount the tale of his miserly business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the path that lead to his redemption. Through Marley’s words, we learn how three magical spirits opened Scrooge’s eyes and made him realise the true value of love and forgiveness.
“riveting acting… stunning voice work… unforgettable” (The Stage)
“Hyland is an immensely powerful actor… the kids were riveted” (The Independent)
