The stars turn out to make merry mischief with Charles Dickens’s festive classic…

If you went crazy for last year’s anarchic and fantastic Peter Pan Goes Wrong, then we’ve got good news – the gang’s back again this year, subjecting Charles Dickens to death by a thousand missed cues and pratfalls.

The formula remains the same – a much loved classic is supposedly being given a makeover by a bunch of incompetents, namely the ‘Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’, who probably shouldn’t be allowed out alone.

If last year’s show is anything to go by – previews weren’t available at the time of going to press – it’s bound to be another winner.

And the calibre of guests – Sir Derek Jacobi and Dame Diana Rigg – is highly promising, too.
