AboutFACE Ireland presents “Orson Welles’ Christmas Carol,” a play for the whole family for Christmas, with a touch of old Hollywood glamour!

It’s Christmas Eve 1938 in CBS Studio 1 where the young radio superstar Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre Company are set to perform their eagerly awaited weekly 60-minute version of a classic; tonight it’s “A Christmas Carol.”

Only things aren’t too Christmassy: it’s ten minutes to ON-AIR and legendary Scrooge Lionel Barrymore has fallen sick, and now Orson has to step into his shoes; plus the script still isn’t right, his cast are revolting after three days of rehearsing without sleep, and the pressure’s on after the success of “War of the Worlds”: the Nation awaits and Hollywood’s watching! Will this Christmas Carol have a happy ending?

The show includes “A Christmas Carol” performed in the 1930’s American radio style with live sound effects and carols. Suitable for ages 8 and up.

Thursday 20th and Friday 21st December @ 8pm (Doors 7pm) Tickets €18/€15
