PREVIEW: Immersive Production of a Christmas Carol to Play at Above the Arts Theatre

This new production of the classic festive story sees Hartshorn – Hook Productions and The Flanagan Collective team up once again, presenting a new immersive experience of the timeless story at Above the Arts from the 12th December.

This unique production, created by writer Alexander Wright and director Tom Bellerby, will see audiences settle down to a two course Christmas feast, while listening and watching Charles Dickens story unfolding.

A tale of ghouls, ghosts and – with your help – barrels of festive cheer. We join Marley over a sumptuous two course feast, and some potent potion to keep off the winter chill. Through parlour games, Christmas songs and a little spirited trickery, we must warm the heart of the bah-humbugging miser, everyone’s favourite festive misanthrope, Scrooge.

The food is provided by chef Danny Jack, and his project The Humble Kitchen. Food on the menu will include all of the trimmings  including hot beef mince pies and a pumpkin, kale and goats cheese vegetarian option.

The Flanagan Collective have teamed up with award winning producers, and good friends, Louis Hartshorn and Brian Hook (Woody Sez, Away From Home, Urinetown, American Idiot) to bring the show to London.

The full menu is as follows:

Hot beef mince pies with suet pastry and marrowbone
Whole Cumberland sausage rings
Pumpkin, kale and goats cheese pie (Vegetarian)
Roasted potatoes with garlic and thyme (Vegetarian & Vegan and Gluten free)
