Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol with Simon Callow is coming to the Arts Theatre this Christmas!
Simon Callow returns to the stage in London with his critically acclaimed A Christmas Carol, playing at the Arts Theatre, London for a strictly limited 5 week season from 8 December 2018.
Based on the performances of A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens himself gave throughout the UK and America, Simon Callow’s one-man show embodies the very heart of this beloved holiday classic.
A Christmas Carol is one of the best-known and beloved stories in the English language. A staple of countless family holiday traditions. The holidays wouldn’t be complete without Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to be. This tale of holiday redemption is festive and jolly, dark and cold, lonely and companionable.
Simon Callow and director-designer Tom Cairns create a stunning one-man theatre experience that is sure to be the highlight of your Christmas in London. Simon Callow is a highly respected and acclaimed actor and author. He returns to Charles Dickens with A Christmas Carol in 2018 following his success in the West End and Broadway with The Mystery of Charles Dickens, and his much-lauded Dt Marigold & Mr Chops, as well as his guest appearances as Dickens on TV smash, hit Dr Who. In 2012 he published a biography of the author. Callow is also known for his stage work including The Woman in White, Waiting for Godot (opposite Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart), and Equus. His most notable screen roles include Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love, and Amadeus.
