About A Christmas Carol

The story of A Christmas Carol follows the old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge. Unfortunately, he seems to be lacking any seasonal spirit. He’s unwilling to help his colleagues and neighbours, even at Christmastime. On Christmas Eve, he’s visited by three ghosts: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Taking it in turns, they aim to convince Scrooge to give up his ways and think differently about his life.
Over the years, London’s theatres have been filled with different interpretations of A Christmas Carol. This play is set to reinvent Winter theatre though, with a trio of acclaimed actors sharing all the roles between them. As it’s a new production, we’re not certain of how the show will be presented. However, every show at the Bridge Theatre is a treat, so we know A Christmas Carol will have all the festive magic we could wish for.
