Dickens’ A Christmas Carol adapted and performed by Martin Prest Sunday 10th Dec 2017

Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
Adapted and performed by Martin Prest
Sunday 10 December at 7.30pm in the Townley Hall, Fulbourn Centre, Home End.
A Christmas Carol, told the way Dickens told it himself: one man, one stage.
Suitable for around age 10 years+.

Now in his 6th spectacular year, playing over 20 characters, Martin Prest brings to life Charles Dickens’ timeless story of redemption.

Miserly and unrepentant Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by his deceased business
partner, Jacob Marley, one fateful Christmas Eve. Marley warns
Scrooge that he will be haunted by three spirits and that, without
their help, he will be condemned. Through the course of the night he
is shown his Past, his Present and his Future by these spirits. He
learns how his actions affect those around him and, also, how they
have been affecting his own life.

As popular now as when it was first published in 1843, this captivating
seasonal tale has the feel good factor of a roast Christmas dinner
and presents under the tree. The perfect start to any Christmas.

Praise for Martin Prest’s A Christmas Carol:

‘A festive treat’, ‘Prest [is] a natural storyteller, and has the
charisma to make 60 minutes of just him, just compelling.’

‘The best piece of story telling that I have ever seen.’

‘Good old-fashioned storytelling… during this delightful hour’

‘A truly unique experience’, ‘beautiful’, ‘An intimate theatrical
experience, brimming with atmosphere & festive spirit – not to
be missed!’

‘You’d be hard pressed to find a version of the work more magical
than this production from That’s My Cue Productions’, ‘Impossible
not to fall in love with’, ‘stunning’.

‘Thank you so much for a great evening. You worked a Christmas miracle of your own. Andrew was transfixed for an hour!!’
Sue, Mother of Andrew, aged 12.
