“Christmas? A poor excuse for picking a man’s pocket every twenty-fifth of December!” exclaims Ebenezer Scrooge in the opening stave of A Christmas Carol. It’s also an excuse for the DICKENS THEATRE COMPANY to bring you their joyously authentic staging of this Victorian classic.

It is 1866 and two of Dickens’ closest theatrical companions find themselves trapped in the footlights’ glare. With the rest of the cast stuck on a train, actress Frances Ternan and Dickens’ faithful tour manager George Dolby take on the daunting challenge of portraying over 30 characters. But, who will play Scrooge?

“Glorious. Bring on the bowls of seething punch!” Morning Star
