Contrasting the classic Victorian ghost story with the modern Theatre, Lies, Lies and Propaganda presents a fresh and frightening new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at the Kings Cross Theatre from 12 December 2017.
Lies, Lies and Propaganda brings its adventurous, daring theatrical style to Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas ghost story, presenting an innovative and frightening adaptation with references to the horrors of 2017.
The show has been adapted by Melissa Lee Speyer for the modern-day audience, highlighting the isolation and division of society and the importance of reaching out and creating communities.
Directed by Michael Dean, A Christmas Carol features Bobbie-Jean Henning (Slut, The Trouble with Harry), Aslam Abdus-Salam (Fire and Ice, Antigone), Jacqueline Marriott (Battlers & Dreamers) and Monica Sayers (Dead Caesar, Where’s My Money?).
Join Ebenezer Scrooge this Christmas on a journey through past, present and future as he discovers the kind of person he was, is and will become. Perhaps there is still time for redemption from his old ways?
