As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house to riotous festivities, from cosy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present.

A one-man theatrical extravaganza of total story-telling: phantasmagoric, hilarious, heart-breaking, visionary, a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and a promise of redemption.

The hit solo show based on Dickens’ own performance of his novel is back for the 2016 festive season  (Reviews from 2011)

Arts [Fringe]

“Intimate, scary and passionate, and all the more impressive for Callow's restrained and thoughtful storytelling.”

Jane Kemp (What's On Stage)

“Callow charms in this captivating reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic tale.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Delectably chilling... Dickens’ familiar entreaty for kindness and Christmas cheer rarely hits home with such force.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage)

“Perpetually relevant and entertaining... A treat, with an engaging storytelling style that means we are instantly drawn in.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“It never fails... Particularly well staged, with a holly-free, unsentimental simplicity... Conversational, feels contemporary.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“This retelling of the staple is very Dickens, for the hyperactive novelist adored giving public readings.”

Ann Treneman (Times)
