A Christmas Carol 2021
by Charles Dickens
European Arts Company returns with a heart-warming evening in the presence of the author himself! Actor John O’Connor delightfully recreates Charles Dickens’s famous performance of his best-loved ghost story.
A Christmas Carol was the first public reading Dickens gave of his own work. He enacted it over 150 times and the effect on the public was phenomenal. ‘The success was most wonderful and prodigious – perfectly overwhelming and astounding altogether!’ he said after the first night. This Christmas, you can experience what it must have been like to be in the audience! Come and enjoy a seasonal treat in the spirit of Christmas past, present and future.
‘This is a beautifully intimate piece of storytelling with a familial, cosy atmosphere. It embraces its classical origin and has a true heart-warming Christmas spirit.’
