Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol returns to the London stage later this year in a new version adapted by Patrick Barlow and starring Academy Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent.
Jim Broadbent will be joined by an exciting group of performers who will bring characters from Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit to life as part of Dicken’s tale of grief, ghoulish ghosts, greed and eleventh-hour redemption.
A Christmas Carol is to be directed by Olivier award-winning Phelim McDermott, Artistic Director of Improbable, one of Britain’s most inventive theatre companies, responsible for the iconic production Shockheaded Peter. Design will be by Tom Pye and Toby Sedgwick will act as Dirctor of Movement with lighting design by Peter Mumford and sound design by Gareth Fry.
In the spirit of the season A Christmas Carol and The Mackintosh Foundation are proud to be supporting St Martin-In-The-Fields Christmas Appeal by donating 50 pence for each ticket purchased. The appeal raises money to assist homeless people with shelter, food, help and advice.
A Christmas Carol starts performances at the Noel Coward Theatre on 30 November 2015 running until 30 January 2016.
