    The Chimes by Charles Dickens starring Toby Jones

    The Chimes by Charles Dickens starring Toby Jones

    THE CHIMES is a feature-length, full-cast  adaptation of the ‘lost’ Christmas book by Charles Dickens, now available to buy as a download. 

    Toby Jones (The Detectorists) leads a cast that includes David Horovitch (House of the Dragon), Lucy Speed (Eastenders), Laura Aikman (Casualty) and Victoria Alcock (Bad Girls).

    It was adapted by Jonathan Morris, directed by Lisa Bowerman and has sound design and music by Howard Carter.

    The story concerns Toby Veck, a man who worries that he has become a  burden on society, a man who wonders if his family would be better off  without him. He’s troubled by a newspaper report about a young mother  who recently killed herself, and her baby, by jumping off London Bridge.  He’s been told that the poor don’t deserve sympathy, and that some  people are just born bad and beyond redemption. And he’s starting to  believe it…

    But on New Year’s Eve, the Chimes set out to prove him wrong.

    This is a free preview of the first 14 minutes of the 95-minute play. THE CHIMES can be ordered now from https://www.averageromp.com/
