  • About
  • UK Tour 22
Guy Masterson - Olivier Award winner & globally acclaimed for his solo performances of Under Milk Wood, Animal Farm & Shylock, now brings us Dickens’ perennial festive fable... Adapted & directed by Nick Hennegan with a stunning original score by Rob Williams, Masterson brings the entire story to life in a magical multi- character performance... Dickens’ extraordinary myriad of personalities from Scrooge to Marley, the Fezziwigs to Tiny Tim - are stunningly animated in Masterson’s inimitable multi-award-winning style. 

Part of the Maverick People's Theatre Company programme.

Starting with his version of Shakespeare's Henry V in 1992 - (Henry V - Lion of England) - after a night in a pub, award-winning writer, director and producer Nick Hennegan has toured the world with his critically acclaimed small-scale adaptations of some of the greatest stories ever written.
His latest is his adaptation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, a story he fell in love with as a small boy.
