Adapting Dickens’ little-used original performance text, Origin’s immersive staging transforms the Chelsea home of the actors Rip Torn and Geraldine Page. They fill the 19th century townhouse with the sights, sounds and smells of both a large Victorian home, and a more modest dwelling circa 1853, which will heighten the inter-dependence of the haves and have-nots inherent in the story. Mince pie and mulled wine, prepared on the premises, will be served during the performance. A small, multi-racial chorus singing period carols will also evoke the season.
The one-man version of the story features the distinguished African-American opera singer and actor Elmore James.
