"I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves or with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly" - Charles Dickens.

"Dickens’ brilliant book is brought to life by a powerful performance from David Kirkland and confident direction from Dave King. The production benefits from a real understanding of both the atmosphere and arc of this famous, festive tale and it’s almost impossible not to be transported to Victorian London. Impressive theatrical storytelling and a real Christmas treat." - Review of 2019 production.
