A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Ashley Ramsden returns with this classical Christmas tale by Charles Dickens. He performs the story single handed and it shows his formidable talents as a story-teller and actor. The program embraces the original masterpiece, transporting audiences back to Victorian England and conjuring up the sinister back alleys, cobblestone streets, and ghostly apparitions that are the story’s hallmarks.

This performance has become a tradition in the STET December programme. Thousands have already enjoyed this lovely story of all times. Audiences, Dutch and non-Dutch alike, listened mesmerized to the story that is still relevant today in a world where there is a gulf in the distribution of wealth, influence and knowledge. 

THE TITANIC ( 90 minutes)
The story of the Titanic is still one of the most chilling metaphors for our time. Despite calm seas and repeated warnings of icebergs in her path this "ship of ships" sailed full steam ahead to her doom. Every day the news is full of the same story. We know that we are devastating our environment, we know that we have to live differently if we are to survive and yet what difference can any of us make against such odds? On board the Titanic, if one person had grasped the inevitable consequences of what lay ahead, the whole disaster could have been diverted.....are we still in the same boat?


THE MAN WHO PLANTED HOPE (
25 minutes)
Often performed by Ashley as the second part of an evening alongside The Titanic, this 20th century parable portrays how the work of one man can transform a barren wasteland into a life-giving “green” environment for generations to come. A story of hope!
