The world of Dickens will be given a fresh twist at Theatre Shop in Clevedon in the days before Christmas.

Steamed: A Dickensian Improvised Tale brings back the age of steam boats, steam trains and steamed puddings in a rip-roaring comedy next month.

The entirely improvised show will see the audience take on a vital role in setting the agenda.

So, other than plenty of laughs, nothing else can be guaranteed.

A Theatre Shop spokesman said: "Join creators of The Wardrobe Theatre's cult comedy, Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera, for something distinctly Dickensian. Come along for a right old knees-up and enjoy improv in the time of cholera!"

A Closer Each Day spokesman added: "Every night will be an entirely new story that could have been written by Charles Dickens himself, on a very good day."

The show is bound to get audiences in the Christmas spirit on December 13-14 and is designed for people at least 12 years old.

Performances will start at 7.30pm on both days and will last about two hours, including an interval.

Tickets, priced £12 plus £1.50 booking fee, are available at www.theatreshop.org.uk or on 03336 663366.

The Times has teamed up with Theatre Shop to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question by 10am on December 5.
