The Old Vic Theatre’s A Christmas Carol will return for the third year. Jack Thorne and Matthew Warcus’s adaptation of the Charles Dickens story will run at the theatre from November 23rd.

For over 175 years, the story of Scrooge has captured the hearts of the nation, and this production was first performed at the Old Vic in 2017, with Rhys Ifans as the misanthrope Scrooge. In 2018, the production returned, this time with Stephen Tompkinson stepping into Scrooge’s shoes.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserable man who hates Christmas. He’s horrible to his co-worker Bob Cratchitt and stingy with his money. But on Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmasses past, present, and future. Over the course of one night, Scrooge will learn the true meaning of Christmas.

Full casting is to be announced.

Jack Thorne adapts the classic Christmas tale. Thorne has adapted several popular works for theatre before, including the Olivier Award-winning Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the Old Vic production of Woyzeck, which starred John Boyega.

Old Vic Theatre’s artistic director Matthew Warchus directs. Warchus has directed several audience favourite shows, including Matilda the Musical, Ghost: The Musical, and Groundhog Day.

With a unique staging which will immerse audiences into the Victorian story, A Christmas Carol will bring merriment, music, and mince pies to the Old Vic Theatre from November 23rd.
