About the show

You know it's the Christmas season when A Christmas Carol returns to the Old Vic. Jack Thorne’s heartwarming adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic will charm even the most committed scrooges. See this festive staple from 23 November 2019.

Published in 1843 London, the novel A Christmas Carol drew on festive stories by other authors as well as Dickens' own experiences as a child.

Thanks to mince pies, merriment, music and immersive staging, the production pulls its audience wholly into the story. Meet Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, and faces up to his uncharitable ways. Relish the lamplit glow of Victorian London and remember the true meaning of Christmas.

The stage adaptation is by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) while direction comes from the Old Vic’s Artistic Director Matthew Warchus. Set and costumes are the work of Rob Howell, compositions and arrangements come from Christopher Nightingale, lighting is by Hugh Vanstone and sound is courtesy of Simon Baker. Casting is by Jessica Ronane CDG, Lizzi Gee is responsible for movement and voice coaching is by Charlie Hughes-D'Aeth.

Paterson Joseph leads the cast as Scrooge. His stage credits include Sancho: An Act of Remembrance and Julius Caesar at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The Christmas Future is looking bright: take the whole family to see A Christmas Carol at the Old Vic from 23 November 2019.
