Back By Popular Demand!

After two triumphant years, Jack Thorne's (the writer behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) joyful version of A Christmas Carol returns to The Old Vic for the 2019 festive season! Matthew Warchus returns to direct this stirring production of the Charles Dickens classic

Penny-pinching and bad-tempered old miser Ebenezer Scrooge goes on the adventure of his life, from his past to his present and beyond and learns that the value of gold will never equal that of genuine love for his fellow men. The classic tale thrills with its beloved characters and message of compassion, love and kindness and of course, Christmas spirit.
