A Christmas Carol

David Edgar’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is the classic seasonal theatre experience in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre this winter. 

In one ghostly Christmas night, cold-hearted businessman Ebenezer Scrooge learns to pity himself and to love his neighbour – but is that enough?

This festive tale of redemption and compassion is one of the most loved short stories ever written, adapted by one of our greatest living writers.
