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 reprises his acclaimed RSC performance as the misanthropic Ebenezer Scrooge, inspired by Dickens' first reading and performance of A Christmas Carol on 27 December 1853 at the Birmingham Town Hall.
