Simon Callow returns to the West End in this much-lauded production of A Christmas Carol, playing at the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited season.
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.
Using Dickens’ adaptation of the story from his own public performances, 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. A Christmas must see for all ages.
A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow is booking from 8 December 2018 until 12 January 2019 a the Arts Theatre, London
What’s the Story?
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.
