A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow at the Arts Theatre
Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, starring Simon Callow, at the Arts Theatre, from 8 Dec 2011 to 14 Jan 2012.
Directed by Tom Cairns, and produced by Assembly Festival and Riverside Studios.
"Taking the author's own performing version as a starting point, Simon Callow and Tom Cairns have created a work of total story-telling: phantasmagorical, hilarious, heart-breaking, visionary, a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and a promise of redemption."
The old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by the spirit of his late business partner Jacob Marley and three other ghosts...
