“John Hardy’s one man version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL…you will be transfixed from the first moment.” - The Albuquerque Journal
John Hardy, nationally known for his one-man play, Rattlesnake, is now touring with a new production, also a one-man play, an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The production features Hardy playing over forty characters.
“It is a loyal adaptation of the book”, says Hardy. “A Christmas Carol is one of the best known stories in the world and I wanted to retain, as much as possible, the essence of the book in its original form.” The play follows the book, scene by scene. “Even though it is the same story as the book, the experience of actually watching an actor move through the events of a play is vastly different than simply hearing the story or reading the book. I get entirely caught up in the story as I am doing the play, and the audience goes right along with me.”
A Christmas Carol, A One-Man Play, Adapted and Performed by John Hardy, runs approximately seventy five minutes and is performed in one act. It is appropriate for audiences of any age but is best suited for ages ten and above.
