You can expect tales of monsters, ancient gods, historical figures and characters of pure fantasy in this action packed show, all presented in Bowjangles’ own inimitable and unique style, full of comedy, energy, panache and almost every musical genre you can imagine. Show is suitable for all ages. May contain traces of Abba.

David Mynne
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! Yes, the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey will now take you on a grim journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London, where Ignorance and Want cower together....and hopefully a few laughs. Bah! Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens' timeless, transformative story: A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Bah! Bah! David Mynne is a founder member of Cornwall’s legendary Kneehigh Theatre.

Age Range: 8+
