Brother Wolf is proud to present the return of its award-winning one-man show, A Christmas Carol – As told by Jacob Marley (deceased), taking the stage for its eighth consecutive year. Adapted and performed by multi award-winning actor/writer/producer, James Hyland, this unique production portrays Charles Dickens’ classic tale from the perspective of Scrooge’s deceased business partner, Jacob Marley.
Hailed as “a forcefully compelling masterpiece” (The Manx Independent) and the “definitive telling of A Christmas Carol” (Redditch Standard), the production has been rated as one of “the top Christmas Shows in London, Edinburgh and around the UK” (High 50 Culture), winning Best Performer in Theatre (Fringe Report Awards 2012) and a nomination for The London Theatre Award (London Awards for Art and Performance 2012), as well as Official Recognition from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
A box office hit, its success is paralleled by Brother Wolf’s other ground-breaking shows: Fagin’s Last Hour, “truly astonishing… unforgettable theatre at its best” (The Courier), Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, “magnificently intense, riveting theatre from one man” (The York Press), winner of Best Male Act (Solo Fest 2013), and A Lesson from Auschwitz, “it’s important that plays like this are seen by as many people as possible” (London Theatre 1).

Jacob Marley is dead and condemned to an eternity of carrying a heavy chain, forged in life; a life to which he can no longer return except to recount the tale of his miserly business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the path that lead to his redemption. Through Marley’s words, we learn how three magical spirits opened Scrooge’s eyes and made him realise the true value of love and forgiveness.
