Latest Review: "Just back from Ol Vic, Christmas Carol is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, heartwarming...."

Age Restriction: Age suitability: 8 and older. Contains haunting supernatural themes, mature emotion, and some content which younger audiences may find upsetting.

Following its successful appearance during the Christmas 2017 season, the timeless classic A Christmas Carol is set to enjoy another run at the Old Vic Theatre at the end of 2018.

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. It is one of Charles Dickens’ most famous stories and has fans all over the globe.

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 Rhys Ifans in this production at the Old Vic and the year before that it was Simon Callow in a production at the Arts Theatre

Even before that the big names were taking on the iconic roles, with Jim Broadbent at the Noel Coward Theatre and Gareth Hale, also at the Arts Theatre.

So expect another top name to take up the mantle of Scrooge when the show returns to the Old Vic in 2018. Working under the direction of Matthew Warchus and from a script by Jack Thorne (newly adapted from Dickens’ original), they will have all of the necessary tools to make this another unforgettable portrayal of the iconic Ebenezer Scrooge.

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 with audiences eager to witness it first-hand.

It runs at the Old Vic Theatre from Wednesday 5th December 2018 (previews from Tuesday 27th November 2018).
