Matthew Warchus‘ big-hearted, smash hit production of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic returns to The Old Vic this Christmas, joyously adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).

The Old Vic’s A Christmas Carol fills the auditorium to the brim with mince pies, music and merriment. A unique staging immerses the audience in this uplifting story.

A Christmas Carol is booking from 12 November 2022 to 7 January 2023 at the Old Vic Theatre, London.

What is A Christmas Carol about?

On a bitter Christmas Eve night a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts.

Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself.

Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?

Who’s in it? A Christmas Carol Cast
