Simon Callow in one man A Christmas Carol - Arts Theatre
Simon Callow to star in the one man adaptation of A Christmas Carol, at the Arts Theatre from 29 Nov 2012 to 6 Jan 2013. (This production played at the Arts Theatre last Christmas)
Based on Charles Dickens’ own performance adaptation, it is directed and designed by Tom Cairns, and produced by Assembly Festival and Riverside Studios.
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.
