A downloadable copy of our recent streamed performance of Charles Dickens' christmastime story, The Chimes. Off Book invite you to join us for our performance of one of Charles Dickens' lesser known Christmas story: The Chimes, A story of some bells that rang an old year out and a New Year in. It's New Year's Eve, and the ever Pessimistic Trotty Veck sees things he dislikes everywhere he looks. He's so pessimistic that he can't even be happy for his own daughter who's about to get married. This New Year's Eve might change all that when Trotty finds himself drawn to the chiming of nearby church bells. This online performance will be a dramatic reading of a script adapted from the novella. By supporting our show you'll be supporting professional performers in this difficult time. So, come and join us for a heart-warming tale written by one of Britain's best loved writers.
