Scrooge comes to Harleston

BAH Humbug! Harleston Players will be bringing some belated Christmas cheer to the stage this month for a performance of A Christmas Carol.

Like every Dickens' tale, this classic story makes for fantastic drama, eccentric, larger-than-life characters, and plenty to get us both laughing and feeling a lump in our throat.

In this dynamic, fast-moving show, the Players bring to life the colourful world of London in the 1840s – home to money-lenders, thieves and the hard-working poor, as well as to some of Dickens' most memorable characters.

We meet Scrooge's super-jolly nephew Fred, his long-suffering clerk Bob Cratchit, his lost love Belle, and the selfless child, Tiny Tim. And then there's Scrooge himself, the ultimate party-pooper.

Adapted for the stage by Karen Louise Hebden, the play received high praise when first performed in 2003.
