A CHRISTMAS CAROL: A Victorian Reading
A CHRISTMAS CAROL is one of the most beloved holiday stories in the English language. Here is the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his Christmas eve conversion from "covetous old sinner" to "as good a friend as the City of London would ever know"!
In the mid 1860s, Charles Dickens took to the stage to give dramatic readings of this story to sell out crowds. Working from the text of the author's original reading copy, veteran professional actor Thom Bray faithfully re-creates the theatrical experience that Dickens' Victorian audiences had! Appearing as Mr Dickens himself, Mr. Bray re-creates a magical moment in history when literature met theatre.
Performed downtown in the beautiful, Christmas decorated Old Church, itself a late Victorian building, A CHRISTMAS CAROL is wonderful family entertainment. See Wordplay Rep's second annual holiday production--sure to become a Portland Holiday Tradition!
"In his straightforward yet highly accomplished performance, Bray rediscovers the Victorian soul of this Christmas perennial."
