Sunday 23 December - 4PM
Pip Utton presents
A Christmas Carol
Pip Utton returns to the Merlin to perform again his entrancing reading of one of the best loved and most famous Christmas ghost stories ever written.
During the last twelve years of his life Charles Dickens toured Britain and the USA reading his writings professionally to his adoring public. The most popular of all these readings was ‘A Christmas Carol’.
In this almost totally candlelit performance and looking uncannily like Dickens, Pip recreates the famous author’s public readings using the script and directions that Dickens himself used.
A magical way to get into the Christmas spirit!
“An enchanted start to the Christmas season. Absolutely captivating”
“A masterful performance. Pip Utton IS Charles Dickens”
Pip Utton is recognized around the world as a leading performer and writer of one-man drama. His performances as Adolf Hitler, Francis Bacon, Charlie Chaplin, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill and most recently as Margaret Thatcher have received rave reviews and won him many awards throughout the world.
