A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol is Aaron Monaghan and Bryan Burroughs’ playful, physical storytelling, stage adaptation of Charles Dickens much loved novella.

Devised straight from Dickens classic text, the two award-winning actors- dressed in snazzy suits- play all the characters at break-neck speed using an array of colourful hats, scarves and an Ikea coat-rack!

The famous cautionary tale tells the story miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by ghosts who take him on a journey through his past, present and future one fateful Christmas Eve.

This production is funny, slightly scary, utterly heart-warming and features a surprise special guest appearing as Tiny Tim…

Upcoming Programme

Livin’ Dred has re-forged its partnership with the venues it has worked closely with in the past fifteen years, particularly with the Nomad and Nasc Touring Networks, and has committed of touring yearly. We have also set ourselves the task of bringing our work to Dublin more regularly by establishing close relationships with The Abbey Theatre, Axis Ballymun and Pavilion, Dún Laoghaire.

The company plans, over the next three years, to undertake a Programme of Forgotten Gems and New Writing. In continuing its commitment to bring old and new work, that speaks to and about our audience and our region, Livin’ Dred has envisioned a programme of work that focusses on two main strands:

Forgotten Gems

Great established plays from the Classical Irish Canon, that have been forgotten or over-looked in the past decade.

New Writing

An initiative that aims to bring young, new dynamic voices to the company.

“I think theatre in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves live performance.”
