Marston Church, Cheese Hill, Frome BA11 5DE
Pip Utton, the hugely talented Frome based playwright and solo performing actor, will perform his new play “A Christmas Carol,” becoming that master of literary story telling, Charles Dickens. This will be an evening getting to know the man behind the myth. The man proclaiming the virtues of a steady domestic life at the same time as he leaves his wife for a younger woman; a man both fascinated by death and terrified by it; a man who above all needs to entertain, whatever the physical cost to himself. You will not only enjoy another of Pip’s incredible impersonations of famous characters but, having heard some of the finest of Dickens’ writing, you will come away feeling that you have spent time with the great writer himself.
Those who have seen Pip’s amazing one man appearances in Frome’s Merlin Theatre or Theatre Royal, Bath, or maybe at the Edinburgh Festival or throughout Europe where he performs regularly, will know that this will be a performance not to be missed and we are absolutely delighted to be able to host him at Marston for our first theatrical venture. Tickets £12, concessions £9 from Angela Yeoman . Please book your tickets early.
