      David-Mynne - door knocker

       

      Kneehigh Theatre favourite & co-founder Dave Mynne, last seen in Kneehigh's Fup, playing Grandad, now takes on Charles Dickens' perennial much-loved Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol.
      Joy to all mankind? 
      Bah!
      Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. 
      Bah!
      Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts(wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. 
      Bah!
      Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets.
      Bah!
      In their inimitable style, the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey (Greek stuff!) will now take you on a grim journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London, where Ignorance and Want cower together.
      This is Dickens’ original words with added silliness. 
      Silliness? 
      Bah!
      Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol. 
      Christmas?
      Bah! Humbug!
      Suitable for adults and older children (10+)
      Directed by Simon Harvey.
      Performed by David Mynne.
      Adapted by Andrew McPherson.
      Additional script by Simon Harvey and David Mynne.
      David Mynne is a Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh Theatre.
      A Christmas Carol was beautiful - apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens!
      "He is a genius". Richard Wolfenden-Brown: Director The Plough Arts Centre.

      What the audience said:
      “Just brilliant! We loved The Odyssey and this was even better. Thank you!"
      "Incredible performance... and by one man! Very enjoyable for kids, parents and grumpy dads!"
      "Absolutely the best show I’ve seen this year."
      "It was incredible. He must know the book inside out! “God bless us, everyone”!
      "Excellent. Inventive and creative."
      "Great fun."
      Fun? Call that fun? Bah, Humbug!"

      The people we all know and love. A world of delight, gossip and regret, of varied and vivid humanity.

      Captain Cat surrounded by fish that “nibble him down to his wishbone”Mog Edwards“a draper mad with love” for shy dressmaker Miss PriceOrgan Morgan, listening to the music with “spouses … honking like geese and the babies singing opera”, while at the sea end of the town, Mr and Mrs Floyd lie in their bed “side by wrinkled side … like two old kippers in a box”, while Polly Garter still sings of “little Willy Wee who is dead, dead, dead”.
