A Christmas Carol

This Christmas, the Old Vic is bringing a new adaptation of Charles Dickens' timeless story about life and loss, A Christmas Carol.

This version is written by the award winning Jack Thorne (whose TV credits include the BAFTA winning series The Fades, This Is England '88 & '90, Don't Take My Baby) and directed by the Old Vic's Artistic Director Matthew Warchus (Matilda, Groundhog Day).

What is A Christmas Carol About?

On a cold Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by four ghosts, who transport him to the worlds past, present and future. The trip makes him realise that he has been living a lifetime of fear and selfishness, and has led him to see with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?

Starring Rhys Ifans (Kevin & Perry Go Large, Notting Hill) as Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol at The Old Vic is an uplifting festive story, vividly brought to the stage in a big-hearted production full of music and cheer - Make sure to book your tickets today to guarantee your place in the audience!

    What a fantastic production, the set was clever, the atmosphere exciting, the use of hand bells and carols gave a real Victorian feel and the mix pathos and fun were to be had all evening. Rhys Ifans was brilliant and it was good to see John Dalgliesh again.

    A memorable show with an excellent cast involved with the audience from the moment we arrived .:fantastic music .was a great bonus throughout and beautiful singing added to the visual experience Rhys Ifans was brilliant as Scrooge . The snow , the slide for the food and the final interplay with Tiny Tim were memorable moments. Great show!
