A Christmas Carol at Chickenshed is theatre for everyone, by everyone – and if it doesn’t get your Christmas spirit going, then frankly I suspect nothing will.
A Christmas Carol with a supporting cast of 200? A Christmas Carol with four alternating casts of 200, involving as many in making Christmas as possible, with the maximum social benefit? I can’t think of anything more in the spirit of Dickens, or of Christmas.
Ove Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a poignant and still relevant story about the way society treats those who don’t fit the mould and it feels like an appropriate choice for a theatre company that prides itself on making everyone welcome.
