A Christmas Carol

Designed by Tom Pye

"The design is openly indebted to those much-loved Pollock's toy theatres: there's a cardboard cut-out style scenery, a large 2D proscenium front and matching red curtain." - Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

Academy Award-winning actor Jim Broadent makes his long-awaited return to the stage to play Ebenezer Scrooge in a new version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL adapted by Patrick Barlow from Charles Dickens' classic story of greed, grief, ghoulish ghosts and eleventh hour redemption.

Olivier award-winning director, Phelim McDermott, heads the latest adaptation in a long history of works inspired by Dickens' novella; from Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life (1946) to the much-loved The Muppets Christmas Carol (1992). The original story takes place on a bitter Christmas Eve as Scrooge is visited by the tortured ghost of his greedy former business partner Jacob Marley, as well as the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come. On this eye-opening and poignant journey through time, we encounter the memorable characters in Scooge's life, from Mr. Fezzwig to Bob Crachit and Tiny Tim, and watch as Scrooge's icy heart melts as he embraces the true spirit of Christmas. 

A CHRISTMAS CAROL runs at the Noel Coward Theatre from the 9th December 2015 until the 30th January 2016. For more information and to book tickets, click here.

Reviews:

The Times: 4 stars ****
"It's a Christmas cake, plum pudding AND trifle, all rolled into one. We are simply overwhelmed, what with poltergeists, the magic carpets, the angel wings and the brilliant puppetry"

The Daily Mail:
"One of the most charming things I've ever seen on the stage...inventive and clever, with puppets and all, and the brilliant Jim Broadbent."

Time Out: 4 stars ****
"The return of the charismatic, hilarious Jim Broadbent is as good a Christmas present as Theatreland could hope for."

Daily Telegraph: 4 stars ****
"There's a mischievous twinkle about everything."

Evening Standard: 4 stars ****
"Phelim McDermott's production is full of intervention, with neat puppetry and plenty of cheeky, lo-fi vibrancy."
