Quirky Christmas drama at the Market Place Theatre

The Market Place Theatre in Armagh is kicking off the festive season at the start of December with two fantastic Christmas themed dramas.

Dyad Productions, creators of ‘Austen’s Women’, ‘I, Elizabeth’, ‘The Diaries Of Adam And Eve’ and ‘Female Gothic’, are bringing their latest production, ‘Christmas Gothic’ to The Market Place Theatre in Armagh. Christmas is a time to remember the past, celebrate the present, and look to the future; a time of feasts and festivities; of holly and mistletoe; a time of visits and visitations. xmas theatre 2

A time of ghosts. Come in from the cold and enter into the Christmas spirit as a dark and spectral woman tells haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the cold and chilling depths of the bleak, wintry dark.

Dyad Productions resurrects a Victorian tradition by presenting three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate the gooseflesh for dark Christmas nights. ‘Christmas Gothic’ will be staged on Friday 4th December at 8pm. Tickets are priced £13 and £11 (concession).

Then on Friday 11th December, book yourself in for a merry little Christmas with Wireless Mystery Theatre’s ‘A Christmas Carol’. With live music, hand cranked sound effects and authentic ’40s radio jingles and Christmas commercials, this is the perennially favourite tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge and his spectral Christmas visitors, with a twist – its set in a ’40’s radio studio!

A real heart-warming Christmas treat with a quirky vintage style. ‘A Christmas Carol’ will be staged on Friday 11th December at 8pm. Tickets are priced £14 and £12 (concession).
