Penning the Carol (December 20-23, 2020)

Penning the Carol Poster

Audience Feedback:

“…the absolute best version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol that I have ever experienced (and I have seen a lot of them). Aiden Flynn’s one-man-show called Penning the Carol is exceptional. This is pure theatre at its best, calling on all of the powers of creative invention and storytelling. Not only does Aiden Flynn convey the original Dickens tale beautifully (morphing seamlessly and masterfully from character to character in an instant), but along the way he also explores the very concept of artistic creation. It is an extremely simple idea, but it rings with profound insight. What inspires a writer to create a story, and how does the idea become the thing itself? It was deeply satisfying to experience this performance on so many levels simultaneously. And I wasn’t alone in my admiration as a patron seated behind me gasped, repeatedly, “This is so well done!””

“Awesome job and it a wonderful to be able to see Penning the Carol “face to face” again. Thank you for your efforts in making this happen!”

“It was so wonderful to get out to see live theatre. Penning was the best I’ve ever seen it performed.”

“So glad that we were able to see this show. It was spectacular.”

“Great new protocols & procedures in place! Even better to see The Hall opening back up & bringing back the encouragement of a venue for performances! Looking forward to more in 2021!!!”

“It was a great show. I think Aiden Flynn’s performance was fantastic. I saw the show once before but I think the show is becoming as distinguished with time 🙂 Thank-you!”
