Humbug - a darkly comic tale for Christmas

Issue No. 2383

Victorian London is replaced by modern Cardiff in this darkly comic interpretation of Charles Dickens’ classic redemption tale A Christmas Carol by the Leftfield Theatre Company.

With the help of three job?weary ghosts Ebs must face the wrongs he has done to his wife, his best friend, his community and ultimately himself.

It uses modern dance and theatre to look beyond the Christian ethics of Dickens’ original to a more social analysis of a person’s place in the modern world and how it can go wrong.

Humbug, directed by Rowena Moreno, Chapter Theatre, Cardiff, 18-20 December £10/£8. chapter.org
