The Bridge Theatre announces an updated programme for November to January, including Simon Russell Beale, Patsy Ferran and Eben Figueiredo in A Christmas Carol.
A Christmas Carol didn’t just invent Christmas as we know it. It’s also scary, joyful, spooky, hilarious, furious, beautiful, and a triumphant declaration that even the hardest hearts can melt.
Simon Russell Beale, Patsy Ferran and Eben Figueiredo will play all the parts and share the story telling in this exuberant new version devised by Nicholas Hytner.
The show will be suitable for all ages and runs 90 minutes without interval. Performances are from 27 November 2020 to 16 January 2021 with evenings at 7pm and matinees at 4pm (on 24 December the matinee will be at 2pm).
Set designs are Bunny Christie with costume designs by Rose Revitt who also acts as set design associate. Lighting is by Jon Clark, sound by Gareth Fry, video design is by Luke Halls and music by Grant Olding.
Also announced in the programme:
Comedian, writer and director Simon Amstell will perform for ten performances only from 10 – 21 November 2020 each at 9pm, for audiences aged 16+.
Last month The Bridge presented Yolanda Mercy’s one woman play Quarter Life Crisis as part of a season on one-person plays. Directed by Jade Lewis and performed by Mercy, following a sell-out run additional performances will now take place on 10 – 14 November 2020 all at 7.15pm.
The Bridge will present five performances of Fake News written and performed by Osman Baig and directed by Oliver Stephens. Performances are on 17 – 21 November 2022 all at 7.15pm.
A budding young journalist lands a dream internship at the country’s biggest online news organization. There, he stumbles on an earth-shattering story and – against better judgement – decides to click publish. There’s just one problem: the story is completely untrue.
Whatever you think about the news or those who make it, prepare to think again – in this one-man show that will force you to ask if there really is such a thing as bad publicity.
The full programme and tickets can be found on The Bridge Theatre website.
