A Christmas Carol. How many versions have there been? Do we need another one?

Gari Jones’ version treads the uneasy line between holding on to the original story and its morals, whilst bombarding it with humour, songs and fragments of a filthy Dickens’ city life. We witness the revelations of the miserly Scrooge as he learns the hardest lessons from his partner, Marley, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Is it too late for him the change his ways? Originally produced by Creation Theatre 2017

Snow White and Other Tales From The Brothers Grimm was produced by Creation Theatre in 2016. Enter the magical Grimm’s world. Here, the strange woodland folk tell the story of the woods and of Star Girl, who releases the story of Snow White. The dwarfs then make Snow White tell them the stories of Hansel and Gretel, The Moon, Rumpelstiltskin, Godfather Death and more.

“Whilst the stories may be familiar, the telling of them is certainly original. A first-class Christmas show. Highly recommended.” Daily Info

“Always different, always challenging, pushing boundaries and breaking the mould. Works on multiple levels, delighting children and captivating the rest of us” Oxford Mail

Both versions mix crazy and silly moments with poignancy, switching in a glimpse, whilst retaining the original story. Innovative, unique and often surreal, these versions also include new songs and modern references.
