A Christmas Carol--Dundee Rep

A Christmas Carol--Dundee Rep

“Bah, Humbug!”

Celebrate Christmas with this classic tale, beautifully adapted for stage by Neil Duffield. Capturing the magic of Christmas in a universal tale of redemption, Dundee Rep’s award-winning Ensemble bring the colourful cast of characters to life - the familiar names of Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley, Mrs Fezziwig, Tiny Tim and, of course, Ebenezer Scrooge as you’ve never seen them before.

The critical consensus

A lovely piece of theatre.

****(*)Joy Watters, Across the Arts

There’s plenty of brilliant theatrical fun in Andrew Panton’s production, with flying bedsteads, flaming gravestones, and a superb ensemble of eight actors whisking us seamlessly from scene to scene on a terrific Victorian set by Richard Evans.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 04/12/2017

Overall A Christmas Carol is a triumph, a heart warming production that offers just enough audience interaction and sparkle to create a festive mood while also offering stunning performances and a truly inventive and enjoyable retelling of a classic.

****(*)Emily Christie, The Wee Review, 04/12/2017

A story as pertinent now as ever, and as elegant as it is engaging.

***(*)(*)Lorna Irvine, The List, 06/12/2017

What the production lacks, curiously, is a sense of real darkness.

***(*)(*)Allan Radcliffe, 06/12/2017

As a flaming gravestone rises up to make clear to Scrooge where she'll end up, for all the show's warmth, this is a plea for the rich to wake up to what's on their doorstep, whatever the century.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 08/12/2017

For all its inconsistencies, the production wins one round, not least with its regular recourse to the Christmas songbook. Indeed, there’s a lovely surprise in the closing number, which sends the audience home filled with festive good cheer.

Mark Brown, Scottish Stage, 23/12/2017
