With a lack of seasonal goodwill, he's greeted by the ghost of his business partner Jacob Marley as well the ghosts of Christmases past, present and yet to come who warn him to change his ways before it's too late.

Jack Thorne's adaptation of A Christmas Carol was first performed at the Old Vic in 2017, directed by Matthew Warchus and staged in an immersive in-the-round seating. 

A Christmas Carol is at the Old Vic from 23rd November.
