A Christmas Carol – As told By Jacob Marley (deceased)

Adapted and performed by James HylandChristmas Carol 2

James Hyland reprises one of the greatest one-man shows of all time in his award-winning production of ‘A Christmas Carol – As told by Jacob Marley (deceased)’. Told from the perspective of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, this critically acclaimed adaptation has been described as the “definitive telling of A Christmas Carol” (Redditch Standard), and delivers thrills, chills and excitement aplenty for all age groups.

Jacob Marley is dead and condemned to an eternity of carrying a heavy chain, forged in life; a life to which he can no longer return except to recount the tale of his miserly business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the path that lead to his redemption. Through Marley’s words, we learn how three magical spirits opened Scrooge’s eyes and made him realise the true value of love and forgiveness.
