Based on Charles Dickens' beloved work, the play follows Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve, when he is visited by three ghosts, each showing him either scenes from his past, a view of the present of a peek into the future forcing the grumpy business owner to reevaluate his priorities and take stock on his life, just in time for Christmas morning.
Andrew Lincoln On Stage - Theatre Credits, Bio and Tickets
Born in London in 1973, Andrew Clutterback is best known by his stage name; Andrew Lincoln. He’s a well-respected theatre, film and television actor, returning to the stage in 2020 to play Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
Growing up in Hull and Bath, Lincoln expressed a keen interest in the performing arts from an early age. While at school, he starred in amateur productions including Oliver, as well as joining the National Youth Theatre. He went on to graduate from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, using Andrew Lincoln as his stage name.
Lincoln made his stage debut in 1998, starring in Simon Bent’s Sugar Sugar at the Bush Theatre. A year later, he played Danny in Hushabye Mountain at the Hampstead Theatre, before a National Theatre and West End debut in Blue/Orange. In a review for LondonTheatre.co.uk, Lincoln was “ pulsating as the young and eager ‘Bruce’. So intense was his performance his shirt was soaked at the end of the play.”
In 2002, Lincoln returned to the National to star in Free, followed in later years by The Late Henry Moss and Parlour Song, both at the Almeida Theatre. After a decade across London’s theatres, Lincoln then starred in what would be his breakout television role; Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead. Away from the theatre, Lincoln's notable television and film credits include Teachers, Love Actually and Afterlife.
2020 marks the return of Lincoln to the stage, playing Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol at the Old Vic. He’ll play the role for 12 consecutive nights, alongside a cast including Clive Rowe and Myra McFadyen.
