Christmas shows - London West End

Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL is one of the best-loved books in the English language.

It has become a classic Christmas tale for generations of grown-ups and children alike, telling the story of the transformation of miser Ebenezer Scrooge as he confronts his past, present and future.

Based on Dickens’ own performance adaptation, Simon Callow and director-designer Tom Cairns have created a one-man theatrical extravaganza of festive story-telling that is both heart-warming and deeply moving.

As the ghosts spirit Scrooge from the present to his past and future, Dickens takes us on a magical journey from the miser’s dank and creaking house to cosy hearths, and from snowy graveyards to joyful festivities.

This treasured story offers a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and the promise of redemption.

A Christmas must see for 8-88 year olds!
