West End star Ryan Hutton and Freya Sharp will star in December, an innovative inversion of the immortal classic A Christmas Carol, and an ultimately hopeful play for today,
A bitterly cold winter in London Town, and as it turns out, Ebenezer Scrooge wasn’t the only person to be visited by spirits one bleak and haunted Christmas Eve.
In a thrilling new play, the classic Dickens character of Cratchit is taken on a timebending journey through Christmas future.
“Tonight, Bob Cratchit, you will see three ghosts…”
December is written and directed by ORL Artistic Director Alexander Knott (Private Peaceful, The Barn Theatre & Bristol Old Vic) and performed by West End star, Ryan Hutton (Only Fools & Horses The Musical) and Freya Sharp (Nuclear War, Old Red Lion).
Reuniting the original Bag of Beard collective on and off stage for the first time since 2017’s ‘Bath’, December features sound design and original music by Samuel Heron & James Demaine. It will be Directed for Camera by Charles Flint.
