The much loved Dickens' tale A Christmas Carol has been adapted for a Garter Lane stage production by Writer/Director Liam Meagher.
The ultimate story of the festive season opens on December 1st, brought to you by the producers of the award winning The Red Iron, Michael Grant and Pádraig Ó Griofa.
Andrew Holden plays the legendary character of Ebenezer Scrooge, with Shauna Farrell, Sinéad Hourigan, Devlyn Lonergan, Charlie Meagher, Joe Meagher, Anne O'Riordan and Kieran Walsh also in the cast.
Dermot Quinn, Jamie Beamish and Helen Troy Whelan form part of the backstage crew; on lighting, set, film and sound duties.
A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843 and has proven itself to be a timeless tale of redemption, with a heartwarming message about what's important in life.
To discuss the Garter Lane production, and the various interpretations of Scrooge over the years, Maria had a chat with Andrew Holden and Pádraig Ó Griofa on The Saturday Cafe. Pádraig also explained the Covid guidelines in place at the theatre. You can listen back on their conversation through the link on this podcast.
