A CHRISTMAS CAROL - CHARLES DICKENS

A brand new adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic – one of the most loved short stories ever written. In one ghostly Christmas night, cold-hearted businessman Ebenezer Scrooge learns to pity himself and to love his neighbour – but is that enough?
A festive tale of redemption and compassion.


David Edgar is one of our greatest living writers. His rich history with the RSC stretches from Destiny in 1976 through the multi-award-winning adaptation of Dickens’ Nicholas Nickleby, to Written on the Heart (2011). Now he returns to Dickens to rediscover the social conscience of this timeless tale.

Rachel Kavanaugh (Alice in Wonderland, 2001; The Merry Wives of Windsor, 2003) directs, fresh from stunning the West End with her award-winning production of Half A Sixpence.

Suitable for ages seven and over and children go half price.
