ABOUT THE PLAY
SUITABLE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY / 7 YEARS AND ABOVE
A family show for English speaking audiences (and not so English speaking either!) Since Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol first appeared in 1843, it has become so popular that is hard to imagine Christmas without it. The story immediately inspired theatrical adaptations (the first just a few months after its original publication) and since then, it has been produced in theatre venues around the world, in hundreds of different forms and has inspired films, cartoons and even television programs.
Face 2 Face Theatre Co.’s adaptation brings a whole new comical twist to this timeless tale. Set in Victorian London; where the privileged in their fancy parlours prosper, while the poor struggle to survive, A Christmas Carol speaks to all ages as it tells the tale of the cynical Ebeneezer Scrooge. With a heart hardened by a tragic childhood and lost love, Scrooge would rather Christmas never came around each year to disrupt his money grabbing ways… until he gets a nightmarish series of wake-up calls from the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.
Face 2 Face’s much loved production captures A Christmas Carol’s magic and humour and will have you rolling in the aisles as well as reflecting on the joy of giving. With its evocative songs, clever improvisations, hilarious gags and magical stagecraft, it’s the perfect holiday season treat for everyone!
Although this show is aimed at english speakers, Face 2 Face’s particular style of acting; based on physical theatre, mime, and slapstick comedy, makes this version of A Christmas Carol accessible to spectators whose level of English is only above average… So if you want to see your grumpy Spanish-in-laws smile – this is the place to take them!

– Opinions –
A play for children suitable for adults, the actors speak an English vocalized and easy to understand and Christmas stories Dickens is well-known and ideal for these dates. Recommended for children carry a certain level of English, very funny.
“Christmas in family”
It is a well-mounted work with result interpretations and entertaining for parents and children.
“It is not very necessary to know much English to understand the work”
I have an intermediate level of English, my daughters 8 and 11 years understood almost everything. On the one hand, the story everyone knows. On the other hand, the actors are very expressive and speak very clearly, so that we understand. Note: Very good violinist too.
