“Expect the first ghost when the bell tolls one…”
On Christmas Eve, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who hates Christmas, is visited by four ghosts, seeking to redeem him from his terrible fate. Only by travelling through time, to the past, through the present and into the future, can Scrooge learn the error of his ways and save his soul. On Christmas Day he awakes a new man and promises to “honour Christmas in his heart and all year round”.
Ghosts, time-travel, romance, and the biggest turkey in the shop (yes the one as big as you) wait in the snowy streets of Dickensian London; and who knows, you may be called up on to lend a hand in Scrooge’s journey too!
A Christmas Carol is an online co-production with Guildford Shakespeare Company following on from their acclaimed Wind in the Willows and A Midsummer Night’s Dream earlier this year. Grab yourself a mince pie and mulled wine and settle down for a festive feast of an adventure, all from the comfort of your own home.
