Looking for a atmospheric night of festive drama this Yuletide season?
Following their smash hit productions of Dracula and Frankenstein, the folks at TrueStory are back next week with another haunting tale.
The acclaimed theatre company return to The Spire in Brighton, England this month with their adaptation of A Christmas Carol.
The heart-warming production sold out its previous runs in 2015 and 2017, and it’s now been seen by over 6,000 people!
The Spire is an old deconsecrated church on Eastern Road that’s now used as an arts and community space – the perfect setting to bring to life Charles Dickens’ timeless classic!
Audiences will join tight-fisted, mean-spirited, money-grabbing Scrooge as he journeys through the night of his life at The Spire – complete with carols, candles, mince pies and mulled wine.
We were blown away by TrueStory’s production of Frankenstein when we saw it earlier this year.
With a mesmerising, bone-tingling and touching lead performance by Gary Sefton, coupled with a wonderful reimagining of the Monster’s costume (no easy task when Boris Karloff’s look is so iconic), the show was utterly gripping in its creepy, immersive church setting – and, we’re not ashamed to admit, at times surprisingly scary.
(Sefton very kindly broke character following the play’s conclusion to reassure any worried children – and adults – in the audience, sweetly offering himself for a chat with anyone afterwards to avoid any nightmares later that night.)
We can’t wait to see their take on A Christmas Carol!
Running twice a night from 12th December to 31st December, tickets are available now, priced between £10-£18.
