It’s not Christmas without A Christmas Carol, and Simon Callow’s version is fast becoming part of the tradition. Returning to the Arts Theatre for the 2018 holiday season, one of Britain’s greatest actors tells Charles Dickens’ classic tale in a critically-acclaimed, one-man production that guarantees to bring the story to life.

A Christmas Carol transports audiences to a Victorian London Christmas Eve, where the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge works the clerks at his financial firm to the bone. With no time or patience for Christmas, families, indulgence or any of the other things that are celebrated at Christmas time, he begrudgingly gives them the day off.

But his dreams that night are haunted by ghosts, who relentlessly escort him through his past, present and future and force him to confront his worst fears. Completely transformed by these visions, he awakes on Christmas morning with a heart full of generosity and love for his fellow people.

Simon Callow is a celebrated actor of stage and screen. As well as numerous, high-profile theatre credits such as Waiting for Godot, Equus and Shakespeare: The Man from Stratford, he has also appeared on screen in The Man Who Invented Christmas, Midsomer Murders and The Phantom of the Opera. Callow has also published several books.

The production is directed and designed by Tom Cairns, whose credits include productions at the National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Old Vic and the Donmar Warehouse.

A fantastic part of the holiday season, A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow is one of the most popular interpretations of the story. A heart-warming tale of a bitter old man discovering the ability to love again, the production plays at London’s Arts Theatre from 8 December 2018 to 12 January 2019.
