A Christmas Carol: A Binaural Audio Experience from Rocket Box Theatre

Zach Pierce is a Bolton-based theatre producer developing a festive audio play, A Christmas Carol: A Binaural Audio Experience.

It’s launched on the Rocket Box Theatre web site on December 12.

The company was founded in January 2019 and completed a national tour of Alice Birch’s Many Moons last spring. They have since built relationships with established theatres and theatre makers and plan to make their Off-West End debut with a two-week run at The Pleasance Theatre, Islington next year.

Meantime, they offer their audio retelling of Dickens’s classic winter ghost story, with spine-tingling musical compositions and a winter world built entirely with sound.

Since lockdown began, Rocket Box has launched Rocket Bytes: a digital season showcasing new writing through audio performance and design.
