Olivier Award-winner John Dagleish stars as Bob Cratchit in Alexander Knott’s Cratchit, a reimagining of the well-loved tale of Ebenezer Scrooge from the perspective of Bob Cratchit. Dagleish won the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance in Sunny Afternoon at the Hampstead Theatre and Harold Pinter Theatre. He is joined by Freya Sharp as Martha Cratchit, who’s previous work includes The Bandaged Woman and Nuclear War at the Old Red Lion.
A bitterly cold winter in London Town, and as it turns out, Ebenezer Scrooge wasn’t the only person to be visited by spirits one bleak and haunted Christmas Eve. In this thrilling new twist on a beloved Dickens classic, Bob Cratchit is taken on a time-bending journey through Christmas future. Originally entitled December, the play was filmed and streamed from the Old Red Lion Theatre last year to great acclaim. Reworked, Cratchit now receives its live world premiere at Park Theatre this Christmas.
