A native of Great Britain, Jennifer Munro, award-winning storyteller, actor, and author, brings Scrooge, the Cratchits, and Fezziwigs vibrantly to life in her dramatic, and thoroughly English interpretation of Charles Dickens’s literary classic. Enjoy this tale of heartbreak, redemption, and joy, as Dickens intended it, on a bare stage with just the power of the human voice to capture hearts and imaginations. As he created the story, Dickens says he wept over, laughed over, and wept over it again – and you will too.
As a child growing up in a large working-class family in the industrial Midlands in England, Munro fell in love with the spoken word. Every Sunday, a cast of rogues, ne’er-do-wells, raconteurs, and heroes gathered around the family’s old wooden table to tell stories, share secrets, and gossip. Their tales are the inspiration for Munro’s extensive repertoire of stories. Poignant, funny, and profoundly moving, they are carefully crafted narratives that resonate with the frailty and courage of the human spirit. However, what really sets Munro’s stories apart is the precision of her language and vividly drawn images.
