Academy Award-Winning Jim Broadbent Makes West End Return In A Christmas Carol

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.

Charles Dicken's Christmas classic is back in the West End. A Christmas Carol tickets on sale tomorrow 2 September, 2015 at 10am!

Ebenezer Scrooge is miserable, angry and just plain mean - even at Christmas time. When he gets visited by the ghost of his old friend Jacob Marley on Christmas Eve, Scrooge knows this won’t be any normal festive period. Will his extraordinary adventure teach him the spirit of Christmas and show him what he’s been missing? Join Scrooge as he’s taken on a magical journey by a host of wonderful characters that will change his life forever.
 
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.
 
Coming together to create this innovative new work are some of our most loved and mischievous maverick theatre-makers. The play is written by Patrick Barlow (who also wrote the huge, long-running hit 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, who is responsible for the iconic production Shockheaded Peter. McDermott also directed Theatre of Blood at the National Theatre in which Broadbent last appeared on stage. Joining them is the critically-acclaimed designer Tom Pye (The Testament of Mary, The Death of Klinghoffer, The Low Road) and Toby Sedgwick (War Horse, The 39 Steps) as Director of Movement, Peter Mumford will design the lighting and Gareth Fry will design sound.

Further cast to be announced.
