A Christmas Carol (Derby Playhouse stage version)

By Charles Dickens Adapted by Karen Louise Hebden

Paperback £10.99£8.79

An acclaimed dramatisation of Dickens' well-loved Christmas story - more faithful to the original than any other published version, and making skilful use of traditional carols to underscore the action.

Karen Louise Hebden's stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol was first staged at Derby Playhouse in 2003, directed by Stephen Edwards with Ben Roberts as Scrooge, breaking box office records with 98% paid attendance.

Hebden's version was staged at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, in December 2005, and was revived at Derby Playhouse in 2006.

It has subsequently enjoyed over fifty amateur productions nationally as well as being the inaugural Christmas production at The Rose, Kingston, in December 2008.

Press Quotes

'It's interesting, moving and disturbingly timely to see Dickens's great cry for humanity treated with such moral and artistic seriousness'
