Paterson Joseph will star in the return of Jack Thorne's version of A Christmas Carol at the Old Vic later this year.

Matthew Warchus' production will be back at the theatre for a third time, following its 2017 premiere starring Rhys Ifans, and revival starring Stephen Tompkinson last year.

Joseph's career in theatre has seen him perform in a number of productions at the National Theatre and RSC over the years, as well as screen roles in Peep Show, Babylon and the upcoming adaptation of Noughts and Crosses.

A Christmas Carol returns to the Old Vic from 23rd November, with tickets available now.

Further casting is yet to be announced for the production's second festive revival.

Thorne, whose work includes writing the script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as well as the end of history... which currently runs at the Royal Court, adapted Charles Dickens' classic novel for the stage in 2017.

It is directed by Old Vic artistic director Warchus, whose production of Present Laughter currently runs at the theatre starring Andrew Scott.

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

A Christmas Carol tickets are available now.
