Background


Following sell-out seasons in 2012, 2013 and 2016, Simon Callow returns in this much-lauded production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, playing for a limited season from 8 December.


Intensely dramatic and profoundly heart-warming, A CHRISTMAS CAROL is storytelling at its finest.


Using the adaptation Dickens made for his own public performances, Simon Callow and director and designer Tom Cairns have conjured up a moving, funny and fast-paced one-man theatrical spectacular that will leave you with a warm festive glow.


Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL is one of the most beloved books in the English language and has become a classic Christmas tale for generations of grown-ups and children alike.


Brought to life by the magnificent Simon Callow, this is a Christmas must see for 8 to 108 year olds!


Synopsis


Dickens takes us on a man's astonishing journey through his past, his present and (terrifyingly) his future, led by his three ghostly guides.


Will Ebenezer Scrooge, tight-fisted, cruel and bitter, finally rejoin the human race and learn to embrace the true generous and humble spirit of Christmas?


From the miser's dank and creaking house filled with shadows to cosy hearths, from stark graveyards to joyful festivities, this treasured story offers a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and the promise of redemption.
