Charles Dickens Writes A Christmas Carol
by Richard Quesnel
December 2-11, 2021
In 1843, 'A Christmas Carol' became one of the most popular books in the English language and has been credited by some as “almost single-handedly reviving the Christmas holiday.” In this adaptation of the holiday favourite, the audience sees the struggles faced by Charles Dickens in his writing of this classic novel. As Dickens creates the story, using only the power of his imagination and the inspiration gleaned from a small choir of wandering carolers, we not only see the beloved tale unfold of Ebenezer Scrooge and his amazing night of ghostly visitations, but find out why a Christmas Ghost-story was written in the first place. Infused with beautiful Victorian carols, dance, lots of humour and tender moments, this play by Canadian playwright Richard Quesnel will delight and inspire this Christmas season.
This staged reading event will feature live music and is perfect for the whole family. Suitable for persons aged 7+.
