A Christmas Carol (London, Old Vic Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

A Christmas Carol


A Christmas Carol  fills the auditorium to the brim with mince pies, music and merriment. A unique staging immerses the audience in London’s longest running adaptation of this beloved festive favourite.


Transporting audiences to a bitterly chilly Christmas Eve night, a hard-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts, who take him on a journey to worlds past, present and future. But will Scrooge save himself from the results of a lifetime of fear and selfishness, now that he can see the ramifications of his lonely existence?
