Simon Russell Beale will return to the Bridge Theatre in Nicholas Hytner’s production of A Christmas Carol for four weeks only this December. He is joined by Eben Figueiredo and Lyndsey Marshal who complete the cast.
Devised by Hytner, A Christmas Carol was previously seen at The Bridge in December 2020, before its acclaimed run was cut short by the coronavirus lockdown. The piece returns this festive season, from 6 December to 31 December 2022.
The creative team includes Rose Revitt (Set and costume designs), Jon Clark (lighting), Gareth Fry (sound), Luke Halls and Zakk Hein (video design), Grant Olding (music) and James Cousins (choreography).
The show is suitable for all ages with a running time of 90 minutes without interval.
Charles Dickens classic tale is a annual British favourite with numerous productions staged across the country. This year A Christmas Carol will be staged in London at The Old Vic, the Rose Theatre and the Southbank Centre – the latter being Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol adaptation.
Simon Russell Beale is due to open in a new adaptation of John Gabriel Borkman at the Bridge Theatre this weekend, which is also directed by Nicholas Hytner.
