An epic promenade production of Neil Bartlett's adaption of Dickens' classic Christmas story.
Deep within the sprawling Victorian vaults under London Bridge train station, you the audience will become participants in the story as you join Scrooge on his terrifying and transformative journey. Professional actors will join a supporting cast from the local Southwark community to immerse you within the world of Dickens' much loved tale.
The production will be directed by Ellie Jones, Southwark Playhouse's artistic director, who recently garnered much critical acclaim for The Erpingham Camp on Brighton Pier as part of this year's Fringe Festival. This show will be Ellie's second production at the Playhouse following the success of How to Disappear Completely and Never be Found last October.
RSC and Shakespeare's Globe veteran David Fielder will be playing the role of Scrooge. His recent credits include Blackbird at Salisbury Playhouse and Shylock in The Merchant of Venice at the Bolton Octagon. Most famously, David worked in Paris with Samuel Beckett and performed his unpublished one-man show Beginning to End.
An ensemble of 8 principal and 20 supporting actors will bring to life all your favourite characters including Bob Cratchett, Tiny Tim, Mrs Fezziwig and, of course, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. Our supporting players will be cast from the local Southwark community and we are aiming to involve a broad and diverse range of participants.
