A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens; Adapted for the stage by David Richards Jones
Directed by David Richard Jones
A Christmas Carol has always been a great story. Victorians sat around the fire to read the story at Christmas. Dickens brought audiences to tears when he performed the story as a one-man show on both sides of the Atlantic. This Vortex adaptation revives the tale as a story, using Dickens's inimitable narrative voice and maintaining his breathless pace as Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes his hallucinations and visitations at the Christmas holiday. It contrasts Dickens's panorama of Victorian London, with its poverty, grime, and crime, against the joys of a traditional Christmas, full of games, songs, puddings, and love. And in the Dickensian spirit, this adaptation makes a passionate appeal for charity.
