The hugely popular re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ festive staple A Christmas Carol, starring Simon Callow and directed by Tom Cairns, will return to the Arts Theatre in London for a strictly limited season from 8 December to 7 January, with press night on Thursday 15 December.
Based on Dickens’ own performance of the novel, Simon Callow and director-designer Tom Cairns have created a critically acclaimed, one-man storytelling that is both heart-warming and deeply moving. With sell-out seasons in 2011 and 2012, A Christmas Carol, with Simon Callow, has become a well-loved adaptation for the Christmas season.
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.
