26h A Christmas Carol: the story for all seasons
The Guardian
From Victorian penury to Caribbean party music, new productions at Leeds Playhouse and Northern Stage in Newcastle revisit Dickens’s festive favourite It isn’t only the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future that haunt Robert Pickavance’s irritable Scrooge. In Deborah McAndrew’s adaptation (★★★★☆), reworked at Leeds Playhouse after last year’s run at Hull Truck, he is also bothered by a band of cheeky poltergeists. With delighted giggles, they hide his slippers, shift his table and swap his nightcap for a Santa hat. In Amy Leach’s vigorous production, it brings a note of humour to rub up against the Victorian penury, disturbing apparitions and grouchy misanthropy. Alongside the songs by John Biddle, given gutsy ensemble renditions, it adds variety to a show with narrative clout. Broodingly lit by Josh Carr, the candles flickering in intensity as the unearthly smoke bellows, Hayley Grindle’s set transfers the business of Scrooge and Marley to a gloomy Leeds warehouse where the labour is tough and relentless. Here, Pickavance’s Scrooge morphs from a cranky taskmaster, his voice prone to shrill outbursts as his shoulders give neurotic shrugs, into a sonorous humanitarian, instantly humbled by the visions before him.
