ctor Clive Francis returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre on Sunday, November, 15, with his acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company performance as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, and other characters from the story. The show is inspired by Dickens’ own first reading and performance of A Christmas Carol in December 1853 at Birmingham Town Hall.

Michael Morpurgo’s magical book I Believe in Unicorns, dramatised as a play, is at The Rhodes Theatre, Bishop’s Stortford on Sunday November 22. The show is set in a library full of books that hold more than stories within their pages. The audience is invited to bring along a favourite children’s book to form part of the set and then to swap it at the end for another book. The story is set in war-torn Europe. Eight-year-old Tomas hates school, hates books and hates stories. Forced to visit the library, he stops to listen to magical tales that the Unicorn Lady spins. By the end, he believes in Unicorns and we do too.

Mark Thomas

Mark Thomas is a man who cuts to the chase. His two-hour show Trespass fits somewhere in the bracket of comedy and political rally. It felt like a call to arms - a wake up call to all those of us who quietly go about our daily business not noticing all the injustice and unfairness on our own doorsteps.
