“A theatrical spell, which is quite unique… and accessible to everyone.” The Guardian
Record-breaking box office hit and one-man show, A Christmas Carol – As told by Jacob Marley takes to the stage for its sixth consecutive year. Adapted and performed by multi award-winning actor/writer, James Hyland, this much-loved production portrays Charles Dickens’ classic tale from the perspective of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, Jacob Marley. Hailed as “a forcefully compelling masterpiece” (The Manx Independent) and the “definitive telling of A Christmas Carol” (Redditch Standard), the production has been universally acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.
“Hyland is an immensely powerful actor… the kids were riveted” The Independent
“A beautiful, simple, festive album from the man dubbed the Guitar Whisperer. Attempting to wrestle control of Christmas from more commercial aspects” Daily Express
