The RH Experience

“We’re a comedy group, bringing our show ‘Scribble’ to the Hastings Fringe. It’s an improvised sketch show, with lots of on-the-spot jokes, songs and characters, all inspired by the audience, so it’s different every time. It’s set against a backdrop that’s illustrated live by Ed Stockham, who draws for the Beano.” Judy Parkinson spoke to Conor Jatter, one quarter of the RH Experience

Those familiar with Dicken’s seasonal classic might recall that there are quite a lot of people in his story, as well as amazing special effects; well not in this version, as ‘A Penny Pincher’s Christmas Carol’ brings you the abridged version with just two actors. What could possibly go wrong? John Knowles writes.
