Neil Bartlett's A Christmas Carol at the Old Red Lion
Metal Rabbit Productions, in association with Old Red Lion Theatre will present Neil Bartlett's adaptation of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens at the Old Red Lion Pub Theatre in Angel, north London from 10 December 2014 to 3 January 2015, with an official opening on 13 December 2014.
Based on the classic Christmas story, director Gus Miller uses just six actors to tell Dickens' most famous work in a new and interesting way, through physicality and ensemble singing.
"Ebenezer Scrooge is a man who has everything; a thriving business, a house of his own in a popular part of London and a huge stash of money he wants to keep for himself. Best of all, it’s Christmas Eve and he's about to be visited by his old friend Jacob Marley. The only problem is that Marley is dead. Dead as a door-nail. Scrooge is about to be dragged on a ride through the snowy and uncertain landscapes of Christmas past, present and yet to come. What is to be seen cannot be forgotten."
The production runs alongside 'Charming – A Farcical Fairy Tale' which is an alternative to Panto, and set to appeal to grownups who have learnt that life is not quite the fairy tale they were led to believe.
