It's a Christmas classic that shouldn't be missed with the wonderful Academy Award-winning actor, Jim Broadbent, who makes his long-awaited return to the stage to play Scrooge in a new comic re-telling of A Christmas Carol, adapted by Patrick Barlow from Charles Dickens' classic story of greed, grief, ghoulish ghosts and eleventh hour redemption.
Coming together to create this innovative new work are some of our most loved and mischievous maverick theatre-makers. The play is written by the Olivier Award-winning and Tony nominated Patrick Barlow (The 39 Steps) with whom Jim Broadbent performed for many years in Barlow's cult comedy troupe The National Theatre of Brent. A Christmas Carol is directed by Olivier Award-winning Phelim McDermott, Artistic Director of Improbable, one of Britain's most inventive theatre companies, and who was responsible for the iconic 1998 production of Shockheaded Peter. McDermott also directed Theatre of Blood at the National Theatre in which Broadbent last appeared on stage.
Performing at the Noel Coward Theatre until the 31st of January, why not try a matinee, tickets available through See Tickets.
