A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow - 2012 - West End

Starting at £43.15

A CHRISTMAS CAROL is the most famous book Charles Dickens ever wrote and one of the most daring. As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges the reader cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house to riotous festivities, from cozy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present.

Taking the author’s own performing version as a starting point, Simon Callow and Tom Cairns have created a work of total story-telling: phantasmagoric, hilarious, heart-breaking, visionary, a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and a promise of redemption.
