Simon Callow returns in this much-lauded production of A Christmas Carol, playing at the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited season from 8 December.
Based on Charles 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.
One of the most beloved books in the English language, A Christmas Carol has become a classic Christmas tale for generations of grown-ups and children alike - a Christmas must see for 8-88 year olds!
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.
