A Christmas Carol

Age Restriction: Age suitability: 11 and older Contains haunting supernatural themes, mature emotion, and some content which younger audiences may find upsetting.

Another timeless classic returns to the capital at the end of 2017, with Charles Dickens’ beloved tale of Ebenezer Scrooge making its way to the Old Vic Theatre, with film and theatre actor Rhys Ifans in the legendary lead role.

A Christmas Carol is a story known all around the world, with characters, phrases and situations that have become hallmarks of popular culture ever since it was first penned back in the 1840s.

And with that in mind each new production of the popular tale has brought with it some of the most famous names of the stage and screen. Last year it was Simon Callow in a production at the Arts Theatre and before that we had Jim Broadbent at the Noel Coward Theatre and Gareth Hale, also at the Arts Theatre.

But this time it is the actor Rhys Ifans who steps up to the mantle. Best known for his film roles, which include everything from Notting Hill to The Amazing Spider-Man, he has previously made his way to the stage in productions like King Lear at the Old Vic Theatre and Accidental Death Of An Anarchist at the Donmar Warehouse. So this is a portrayal of Scrooge that should not be missed.

Scrooge, of course, is the old curmudgeon at the centre of Dickens’ tale. Bitter and twisted, taking glee at the suffering of his employees, whom he forces to work on the impending Christmas, and uttering Bah Humbug! at the mere mention of the season celebration, Scrooge’s antics have come to define an entire character-type. But on the night before Christmas he is visited by a series of ghosts, who show him the errors of his ways by forcing him to confront his past, present and future.

Ultimately this is a positive and feel-good story that has stood the test of time and this time comes to the Old Vic Theatre under the direction of Matthew Warchus and in the form of a new adaptation by Jack Thorne.

It runs at the Old Vic Theatre from Saturday 18th November 2017.
