The award-winning Dyad Productions (A Room of One’s Own, Christmas Gothic) bring their magic to Dickens’ classic and perennially relevant ghost story.

It’s Christmas Eve, and the miserly misanthrope, Ebenezer Scrooge, is about to have a ghostly night he’ll never forget. Dickens’ festive, immortal tale of redemption and compassion is brought to life in Dyad’s inimitable style. Draw near for an evening of mistletoe and merriment in the company of Marley, Fezziwig, and Cratchit et al to discover the true meaning of Christmas: tenderness for the past, courage for the present, and hope for the future.

Taking inspiration from Dickens’ original performances of his own work and utilising the brilliant narrator of the novel to bring the story to life, the piece is performed by Andrew Margerison (Frantic Assembly’s Fatherland, Macbeth), and directed by Rebecca Vaughan.

Praise for Dyad Productions:

★★★★★ ‘Intelligently adapted, beautifully performed… entrancing’ (British Theatre Guide)

★★★★★ ’Richly re-imagined, exquisitely evocative’ (Edinburgh Guide)

★★★★★ ‘A towering performance…assured…rich’ (The Scotsman)
