Matthew Warchus’s production is a love song to Christmas, to the redeeming power of theatre and, not least, to The Old Vic itselfThe Observer
20 Nov 2017–20 Jan 2018
Matthew Warchus directs Charles Dickens’ timeless classic A Christmas Carol in a joyous new adaptation by Jack Thorne.
On a bitter Christmas Eve night a cold-hearted miser is visited by four ghosts. Transported to worlds past, present and future, Ebenezer Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?
An uplifting story for families aged 11+, this essential festive treat is vividly brought to the stage in a big-hearted production full of music and cheer.

Well, A Christmas Carol at the @oldvictheatre is one of those productions that you'll just never forget. It was beautiful, moving, joyful and uplifting. The cast are brilliant, I adore the work this creative team brings to London. Go and see it!!! (Also, final cry count: 6)
'A Christmas Carol' at the @OldVictheatre with Rhys Ifans is *really good*.
I may be a sentimental sausage but I found it genuinely moving. And such a great message about not wasting one's life needn't be pegged to Christmas. Watch me change.
