Everyone's Carol

A New York Carol, A London Carol

For Christmas For Carol For Everyone... We Are Grateful For Any Help You Can Offer!

A Very Dickensian Christmas Eve

Start your Christmas with a day to remember at 48 Doughty Street, as we celebrate the festive season.  The halls will be decked with holly and ivy and the rooms ready for a Christmas celebration just as the Dickens family would have known it.

This year, show creator Laurie Strickland and the cast of Everyone’s Carol will be bringing their magical shared vision of a New York and London Christmas Carol to Doughty Street.  Picking up the tale of Dickens’s very personal “little ghost of a book”, from room to room they will lead you through vignettes taken from A Christmas Carol, illuminating the enduring tale of light and dark.

You can also immerse yourself in a host of other festivities around the House.  See how the Victorians made a traditional Christmas pudding, enjoy the sound of carols echoing in the halls and listen to extracts from A Christmas Carol, all in the beautiful surroundings of Charles Dickens’s only remaining London family home.

Tickets will include some warming mulled cider and traditional mince pies.

Wed 24 Dec

From a man who loved humanity, faced adversity and weaved one of the most beautiful, enduring stories ever told to a coffee shop window in the snow, two adaptors fervently working to keep the honesty of the spirit intact, a New York Theatre and a collaboration with dear friends, to Brooklyn with over 50 volunteers. It has been a miraculous journey filled with so many folks volunteering their time and talents and love to us. It is too much to share with words, so see for yourself. And at the heart, we have the theatrical legend and beloved Austin Pendleton as our Scrooge. The journey of telling this story from a living room in Harlem to meeting the First Lady of the United States, the Prince of Burma, laying flowers at Westminster Abbey, continues. This little story touches everyone. It is truly Everyone’s Carol.
