Director Gemma Fairlie said: “A Christmas Carol is such an iconic story. I don’t remember how I learnt the story, but it feels like I’ve known it all my life. The original tale of Christmas cheer.


“So, there is a bit of pressure felt when I step into rehearsals in Keswick! However, that worry quickly dissolves into laughter and a warm Christmassy glow as I hear the actors reading Patrick Barlow’s version. It is genuinely very funny, and the actors are having a blast. There’s only five of them and they play everyone, from all three ghosts to the five Cratchit children to random passers- by. They are also doing puppetry, playing a range of instruments and singing beautiful harmonies for all the carols. It’s going to be a busy show.


“What really strikes you about this version is the heart. Patrick has found a wonderful way into telling the story through the ensemble and helping us understand why Scrooge has turned so mean. We hate him at first but by the end we really care. It’s such an incredible story of learning to love again and it feels like it’s just the antidote we need to cold nights and dark days. I can’t wait to share the Christmas joy!”.


Barlow’s version was first produced in London’s West End in 2015, with Jim Broadbent playing Scrooge. TBTL’s production is directed by Gemma Fairlie and boasts a cast of five actors: Pete Ashmore, Sally Cheng, Max Gallagher, Darren Lawrence and Claire Storey. Darren Lawrence plays Scrooge with the rest of the cast performing a multitude of characters, as well as playing a variety of instruments.
