A CHRISTMAS SHOW
Charles Dicken’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ is one of the most adapted stories of all time, and AIDAN STRUDWICK plans to outperform them all, assisted by two unenthusiastic elves. It doesn’t take long for the story to be replaced with a series of crass, attention-seeking acts, and we learn this isn’t about making an adaptation that is faithful, but more so an adaptation that is impossible to forget. And because it’s attention-seeking: yes, it’s a musical.
Beyond this not-family-friendly Christmas performance is a concern for validation, and how far we’ll go just to be seen. Combining performance art, cabaret and (bad) theatre, AIDAN STRUDWICK plays multiple characters and does away with characters entirely in this comedic take on standing out from the crowd.
