A Christmas Carol

Bookings closed - all seats taken
Matthew Warchus’ big-hearted, smash hit production of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic A Christmas Carol returns to The Old Vic for a limited festive season, joyously adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne. He also wrote the stage adaption of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Date/Time: Tuesday, 29th November 2022 at 13:00 - 15:05

Location: Old Vic, The Cut, London, SE1 8NB

Price: £56.50 per person. Retiree and guest £113

Event Organiser: Pete Wells

The play follows Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve. He is visited by three ghosts, in turn showing him either scenes from his past, a view of the present or a peek into the future. Consequently, he’s forced to re-evaluate his priorities. Can Scrooge do this and take stock of his life in time for Christmas morning?

In the story, the Cratchits make the most of the little they have while Scrooge is confronted by his misery and lonely life of greed. After he is visited by his otherworldly visitors, we hope that change does not come too late.

Jack Thorne’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol is now a London institution. It premiered at the Old Vic in 2017, starring Rhys Ifans as Ebenezer Scrooge and immediately became a must-see piece of festive theatre. A Christmas Carol has returned to the Old Vic every year since and is a seasonal story of redemption which is known and loved around the world.
