“An enchanting piece of theatre” Irish Theatre Magazine

“engaging physical slapstick” The Irish Times


Fresh from a run at Druid’s Mick Lally Theatre in Galway, award-winning actors Aaron Monaghan and Bryan Burroughs return to Cavan perform their acclaimed adaptation of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ at Townhall Cavan Arts Space on Sunday, 10 December at 3pm.

Performed in 45 exhilarating minutes by two of Ireland’s brightest acting talents, Charles Dickens’ classic tale is playfully and faithfully retold using only physical and vocal skill, along with many hats, some scarves, fairy lights… and an IKEA coat rack!

Cavan native Aaron Monaghan is a member of the prestigious Druid Ensemble and has toured the world, winning a prestigious ‘Obie’ award for his Broadway performance in ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’.

Bryan Burroughs is well-known to Cavan audiences, having wowed at Townhall in November with his mesmerising one-man show ‘Beowulf: The Blockbuster’. The hit of the 2014 Edinburgh Festival, Burrough’s performances have garnered a slew of five-star reviews from the New York Times, The Irish Times and the Scotsman, among others.

Told with effervescence and an unbridled passion for this most famous of cautionary tales, experience A Christmas Carol’s unforgettable characters and enduring Christmas spirit as you’ve never seen them before this Christmas at Townhall Cavan.

Admission is €12 (adults) and €8 (children under 12). Tickets are available from http://townhallcavan.yapsody.com  or Multisound Cavan. Call 049-4361312 to book.
