About the Show

With a fresh perspective on the timeless tale, this adaptation remains true to the enchanting essence of Dickens. Set on a Christmas Eve in 1843, friends and family assemble at Dickens’ residence, eagerly beseeching him to share a story. Yet, he staunchly declines to work on such a hallowed evening. Instead, he proposes a collaborative endeavor, wherein each person shall contribute to the narrative’s unfolding. And thus, the magic commences, as the ensemble of 10 individuals takes on an impressive array of more than 40 roles, bringing the story to life in an extraordinary performance.
