Audiences REVIEWS

"It really worked as a one man show - excellent casting.

Very clever adaptation - distinct in that it

challenges the binary nature of the Dickens story where the only option of morality is fully bad or fully good, and instead gets us to question "is bad sometimes good?" "What causes someone to become wicked?" "Maybe we're more like Scrooge than we'd like to think?" "Maybe reform is about making little changes but personality and character are different things"


LOVED that Scrooge was an Elvis fan! Not only is the actor an excellent Elvis impersonator, but it brought some further humanity to him and likeability, but also was this aspect of fun and light representative of the untainted Scrooge from before.


The team of two made such excellent use of the lighting and space and showed how much you can achieve with very very little! Using fairy lights, battery powered lamps, neon lights, handheld or strung up, symbolic props and a handy curtain as a portal for various characters!


The recurring Drowning motif was brilliant and worked so well as a transition. Movement direction was beautiful and clever and helped tell the story so well and create the sense of the supernatural and haunting."


"This adaptation of Scrooge will stick with me for a long time. One actor, a dystopian time travel, a ghost and the spirit of Christmas. All masterfully combined at the top of a pub. Inside a black box. Brilliant."
