A One-Man Christmas Carol

Last week, I was very lucky to be able to attend a one-man production of 'A Christmas Carol'.

Yes, you read that right, a one-man production of A Christmas Carol.

Chris Matthewman is a very talented local youth pastor. I believe that he had written the script, as well as performing it.

The play told the classic story of A Christmas Carol, adapted for a modern audience, and with a biblical twist.

The three spirits were portrayed as a rapper (accompanied by the 'This is Your Life' theme), someone from Eastenders, and a Jamacian hoodie (who originally came from Poland). We were also encouraged to sing (and dance) along, panto style. 

The most amazing thing, however, was the fact that each character had a totally different voice and way of moving (remember this was all done by one man). They were all totally convincing. There was even one moment where Bob Cratchett taught Tiny Tim a song and they sang alternate lines to each other.

It was absolutely fantastic! If you have a chance to see any of Chris' work then please do!
