The Ark – Christmas Carol Show
*This event will not be taking place this year*
A Christmas Carol Snow
Back by popular demand, The Ark presents Aaron Monaghan and Bryan Burroughs’s playful adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic story.
Performed in 45 exhilarating minutes by two outstanding actors, Charles Dickens’ unforgettable characters come to life as the story of Ebenezer Scrooge is faithfully retold using only physical and vocal skill, many hats, some scarves, fairy lights… and an IKEA desk lamp!
