WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A Christmas Carol is the most famous book Charles Dickens ever wrote and one of the most daring. As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges the reader cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house in the City to riotous festivities, from cozy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present.
Clive Francis returns with his highly acclaimed and hugely popular RSC performance as the misanthropic Ebenezer Scrooge. Bringing to life a whole host of Dickensian characters from the spectral Jacob Marley to the warm and loving Bob Cratchit and his son Tiny Tim, not forgetting, of course, the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Suitable for everyone from 12 to 112, this is a perfect way to enter into the Christmas Spirit!
