A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow

A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow Tickets

Following sell-out seasons in 2011/12 and critical and audience acclaim, Simon Callow returns in this much-lauded production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, playing at the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited season from 8 December.

Based on Dickens’ own performance adaptation, Simon Callow and director-designer Tom Cairns have created a one-man theatrical extravaganza of festive story-telling that is both heart-warming and deeply moving. A Christmas must see for 8-88 year olds!

Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL is one of the most beloved books in the English language. It has become a classic Christmas tale for generations of grown-ups and children alike.

As the ghosts spirit Scrooge from the present to his past and future, Dickens takes us on a magical journey from the miser’s dank and creaking house to cosy hearths, and from snowy graveyards to joyful festivities. This treasured story offers a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and the promise of redemption.

Simon Callow, one of the nation’s best loved actors, returns to Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL after huge international success with The Mystery of Charles Dickens (West End and Broadway), national acclaim for Dr Marigold & Mr Chops and guest starring as Dickens on Doctor Who (BBC). Notable recent acting work has included his performance as Count Fosco, the villain of Wilkie Collins's The Woman in White, both in film and on stage; as Pozzo in Beckett's Waiting for Godot opposite Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart and Ronald Pickup; and as the psychiatrist in Chichester Festival Theatre's production of Peter Shaffer's Equus.  

Simon published his own biography of Dickens in early 2012. On screen, Simon is best known for his roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love and Amadeus.
