A Christmas Carol is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall on 19 December 1843.
Matthew Warchus' big-hearted, smash hit production of Charles Dickens' immortal classic returns to The Old Vic from 5 December, with previews from 27 November, joyously adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).
Filling the auditorium to the brim with mince pies, music and merriment, a unique staging immerses the audience in this uplifting story for everyone aged 8+.
On a bitter Christmas Eve night a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts.
Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself.
Can Ebenezer be saved before it's too late?
