“It’s Christmas Eve 1988, and disco is dead. The embittered, washed-up, one-hit wonder CAROLE SINGER is still reaping the ever-diminishing returns of her 1976 Christmas hit Disco Christmas (Sleigh Bells Slay). Carole’s deep-rooted hatred of Christmas explodes in resentful rage at all around her. It takes a haunting from four glamourous ghosts to show Carole what fate awaits if she doesn’t change her ways. But will Ms Carole Singer listen?
Written by comedy legend Myra DuBois, A CHRISTMAS CAROLE takes the classic story by Charles Dickens and wraps it up inthe tinsel-strewn nostalgia of British Christmases. Raucous drinking, Christmas hits and family arguments all feature – all gift-wrapped in a bow of camp and outrageous drag!
From the Producers of the five-star, smash hit West End drag murder mystery Death Drop , A CHRISTMAS CAROLE is a Southend world premiere.”
