It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit from the ghosts of Christmas’s past, present and future and this year London theatre audiences will get to visit the world created by Charles Dickens once again as Simon Callow returns to the iconic role of Ebenezer Scrooge for a one-man show.

Just as it did in 2011, 2012 and 2016, the production is headed to the Arts Theatre in the West End and as a result the stage there will be transformed into 19th century London under the direction of Tom Cairns

Based on past success this will be one of the most talked-about shows of the West End’s Christmas season and one audiences will remember for some time to come.

A Christmas Carol is no stranger to the West End stage and a version of the Charles Dickens classic tends to appear here year after year. Whilst Simon Callow returns to the Arts, Stephen Tompkinson plays Scrooge in the Old Vic’s 2018 productions, whilst names like Jim Broadbent, Gareth Hale and more have also inhabited the part in its other previous appearances on London’s stages. It is a testament to the timeless quality of the text that it keeps on finding an adoring audience.

Few are unaware of the story of the play, with the focus falling on Ebenezer Scrooge, an inhabitant of Victorian-era London, who is famous for being a grumpy, unpleasant human being who forces his employees to work on Christmas Day, all the while uttering his famous phrase “Bah! Humbug!” During The Night Before Christmas he is visited by three ghosts, including his former business partner Jacob Marley, and by seeing his past present and future he is able to see the error of his ways.

Simon Callow is a well known actor whose work spans the stage and screen and in recent years, in the West End, he has been seen in the show Shakespeare: The Man From Stratford at the Harold Pinter Theatre and The Mystery of Charles Dickens at the Playhouse Theatre. His other credits include Being Shakespeare at the Trafalgar Studios, Waiting for Godot at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Equus at the Chichester Festival Theatre, amongst others.

A Christmas Carol returns to the Arts Theatre for a Christmas run beginning on Saturday 8th December 2018.
