A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

Inspired by Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story


Academy Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent makes his long-awaited return to the stage to play Scrooge in a new version of A Christmas Carol adapted by Patrick Barlow from Charles Dickens’ classic story of greed, grief, ghoulish ghosts and eleventh-hour redemption.

From Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig, Patrick Barlow’s imaginative adaptation of A Christmas Carol will bring some of Dickens’ most memorable characters to life at the Noël Coward Theatre this winter. Jim Broadbent will be joined by an exciting group of performers, to be announced shortly.

Jim Broadbent is joined by Adeel Akhtar (Utopia, Four Lions), Amelia Bullmore (BBC’s Twenty Twelve, The Norman Conquests), Keir Charles (The White Devil, The Arden of Faversham and The Roaring Girl (all for the RSC)) and Samantha Spiro (Di, Viv and Rose, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew).

Puppeteers Jack Parker and Kim Scopes complete the ensemble. Jack is currently working with Warner Brothers on the new film of The Jungle Book. His previous stage work includes War Horse for the National Theatre and A Dog’s Heart and The Magic Flute both for Complicité. Kim previously worked for Blunderbus Theatre Company, the New Wolsey Theatre, Flabbergast Theatre Company and Twice Shy Theatre. She has also taught puppetry in Peru, performed at Glastonbury festival 2014 and this year puppeteered on two music videos.
