The Telling

Über uns

The Telling attempts to break new ground, where new writing and music collide. We tour high-quality, accessible and affordable productions to places that are often missed out on touring circuits. We are also known for our special intimate performances of carols.
In 2022, The Telling was shortlisted for two REMA Awards and was selected for BBC/ACE funded The Space Pitch Perfect scheme to receive mentoring and develop Love in the Lockdown to pitch for national BBC radio.
Our most recent show, What the Dickens?, reimagines Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with Dickens in place of Scroog. He is haunted by the women he mistreated and his carefully managed image as a family man, which has created the very quintessence of Christmas, begins to unravel. The show stars Clive Hayward, Karen Ascoe and Molly Lynch, and features Victorian, folk and carol repertoire as well as bespoke compositions by composer/arranger Steve Edis. The show first toured October 2023 and is set for a wider UK tour in 2024.
