There’s many adaptations of A Christmas Carol in London. But if you’re looking for A Christmas Carol with a twist, see Sh!t-faced Showtime - A Pissedmas Carol at Leicester Square Theatre from 15 December to 7 Jan. 2023.

Based on Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, join Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. During each performance, one cast member will be inebriated, and press material states: “this all-singing, tipple-slinging, merriment-bringing, boozical is bound to leave you gasping for a chaser.” Katy Baker directs, and Jess Davies provides lighting design.

The multi-roling cast includes James Murfitt, John Mitton, and Ashley Gerlach as Ebenezer Scrooge, Dan Quirke, and William Seaward Belle as Jacob Marley and the Ghost of Christmas Present, Issy Wroe Wright, and Katy Baker as Tiny Tim, Katy Baker, and Lucy Sutton as the Ghost of Christmas Past and Mary Cratchit, and Hal Hillman, and Dan Quirke as Bob Cratchit and young Scrooge.
