Christmas Eve. A time for joyful anticipation, celebration and goodwill to all!
Perhaps not all. To the poor and the hungry in Victorian London, Christmas Day is just another day to struggle through. And for Ebeneezer Scrooge it’s a day lost, with business left undone and money misspent. Happy Christmas? Bah, Humbug! But tonight, this special night, Scrooge will be forced to confront the choices he has made, the opportunities he’s missed and bleak future that lies ahead, unless he can change…
This classic Christmas tale from Charles Dickens is given the Theatre Workshop Coulsdon treatment this December. Box Office open now!
And we’re very pleased to announce that we are linking up with The Purley Food Hub for this production. Charles Dickens was not only an author but a campaigner for better conditions for the families and children of the working poor. Sadly, nearly two hundred years after he wrote ‘A Christmas Carol’, low incomes and hunger remain issues that afflict far too many, and The Purley Food Hub does its very best to alleviate the problems as best it can. A drop off point for donations will be sited at the Coulsdon Community Centre for the duration of the show’s run. Come and see the show, and perhaps help to make someone else’s Christmas a little better too.
