A CHRISTMAS CAROL IN PROSE

A Christmas Carol - Man of Word's Theatre
A dramatic recitation of Dickens’ Public Reading Version


"Charles Dickens is one of the authors that inspired me to perform classic literature. His understanding of human nature and human suffering impressed me deeply when I first read one of his books back in 1985. That book was A Christmas Carol. My first recitation of the book in 2010 was the fulfillment of a 25 year old dream.

"Charles Dickens is one of the authors that inspired me to perform classic literature. His understanding of human nature and human suffering impressed me deeply"

Rickie Birran
Dickens performed 472 public readings from his own books in Great Britain and America between 1853 and 1870, the year he died. The edition of A Christmas Carol in Prose that he performed 124 times is essentially the text for my recitation. There are now at least 30 different one-man shows of A Christmas Carol world-wide. Each performer has a different approach. Dickens' great great grandson, Gerald Dickens reenacts his ancestor's performance of the book.

Man of Words' A Christmas Carol in Prose is a simple presentation. I recite the book in the style of a theatrical storyteller. I stay seated on my stool and limit my movement in order to place emphasis upon the words and let the story come to life in your imagination. Visualizing the four ghosts is enhanced by Dan Chen's original sculptures. Their foreboding presence in the show says, in no uncertain terms: This is a ghost story!

It's a story worth hearing."
