‘Joy to all mankind... Bah!’ Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. ‘Bah!’ Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts, each one more terrifying than the last. ‘Bah!’ Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. ‘Bah!’

Arts Alive extends a seasonal welcome to the team that delighted audiences with Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey, and which now offers a grim journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London, where Ignorance and Want cower together .... ‘Bah!’

The brilliant man-with-the-rubber-face, David Mynne, gives a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens's timeless, transformative story, A Christmas Carol. David is a founder member of Cornwall’s legendary Kneehigh Theatre, and his wonderfully inventive, often hilarious shows never fail to please. Suitable for everyone aged 8 and over.

See David Mynne’s A Christmas Carol at the Steiner Academy in Much Dewchurch at 7.30pm on Friday, December 14. To book, call 01981 540221 or visit artsalive.co.uk to book online.
