A Christmas Carol

About A Christmas Carol

A Ghost Story at Christmas

This adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens was originally written by Richard Allain to raise funds for the Great Ormond Street Hospital charity in London. It was performed then by the Bingham String Quartet and narrated by Sir Richard Stilgoe OBE, songwriter, lyricist, musician, and broadcaster. Richard Allain, is an acclaimed composer whose work is regularly performed and broadcast in the UK and abroad.

Sue Muir and Clea Friend have brought together the Bonaly Players, a group of talented professional musicians along with narrator Pete Baynes, a member of the highly respected Theatre Alba, well known for atmospheric performances in the gardens of Duddingston Manse during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Bonaly Players will perform ‘A Christmas Carol’ at Duddingston Kirk on Saturday 16th December at 6pm. Tickets (£15 each) can be purchased through Eventbrite: HERE. A limited number of tickets will be available on the door.

‘A Christmas Carol’ recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. The story captures the spirit of the early Victorian revival of the Christmas holiday. Dickens acknowledged the influence of the modern Western observance of Christmas and later inspired several aspects of Christmas, including family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, dancing, games and a festive generosity of spirit.
