A Christmas Carol (2011)
By Charles Dickens
Directed by Graham McLaren
"One of the classiest pieces of theatre to have been staged in Scotland, not only in the winter season, but at any time of year." Daily Telegraph*****
"A powerful broadside against anyone who thinks there's no such thing as society." The Guardian *****
"Scrooge learns to pity the poor - and Christmas-time theatre is much enriched in the process." The Herald****
The National Theatre of Scotland’s version of Charles Dickens’ classic fable is an exquisite take on one of our most famous winter tales.
Only 90 audience members per show join Ebenezer Scrooge in his Victorian counting house and sit in creepy close-up as this most famous of misers is visited by three ghosts during his night of soul-searching.
Other-worldly puppets, top-rank Scottish actors and some of the most beautiful words ever written in the English language combine to make this intimate Christmas Carol heart-rending and heart-warming in equal measure.
