If you think you’ve seen Charles Dickens’ immortal A Christmas Carol, and  just wait until you see Patrick Barlow’s new adaptation…True to its source (a ghost story, after all), it has its frightening moments as well as the immortal tale of redemption. All beautifully done. And then there are the unique touches that set this adaptation apart from Dickens’ original: the occasional hilarious contemporary dialogue, fourth wall disintegration, and a dash of puppetry. No matter how many times you’ve experienced A Christmas Carol, this version is not one to miss.

Eddie hypnotized to make him feel “invincible” around strangers.
Unfortunately, the Hypnotist (who has had a few too many) mistakenly
convinces Eddie that he is “Invisible” around strangers instead.
Throw in a cockney super, a lustful landlady, a blustering boss, a
blind Bonny and a baited barkeep at the Cock and Poppy Pub and
you’ve got yourself a cracking good British comedy!
