A Christmas Carol

Posted on

In 2018, I was invited by the Folkestone Quarterhouse to create a new adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’ for families.



Together with Jess Mable Jones and Joseph Hardy, I created this fast-paced, comic take on the classic tale featuring original songs, beautiful shadow puppetry and visitations from some rather silly ghosts. The show runs at 60 minutes and played to sold-out family audiences across the run.
