Simon Callow returns in this much-lauded production of A Christmas Carol, playing at the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited season from 8 December.
Based on Charles Dickens’ own performance adaptation, Simon Callow and director-designer Tom Cairns have created a one-man theatrical extravaganza of festive story-telling that is both heart-warming and deeply moving.
One of the most beloved books in the English language, A Christmas Carol has become a classic Christmas tale for generations of grown-ups and children alike - a Christmas must see for 8-88 year olds!
As the ghosts spirit Scrooge from the present to his past and future, Dickens takes us on a magical journey from the miser’s dank and creaking house to cosy hearths, and from snowy graveyards to joyful festivities. This treasured story offers a celebration of goodness, a plea for justice and the promise of redemption.
Simon Callow returns to Dickens’ A Christmas Carol after sell-out seasons in 2011/12 which played to critical and audience acclaim. He achieved huge international success with The Mystery of Charles Dickens (West End and Broadway), national acclaim for Dr Marigold & Mr Chops and guest starring as Dickens on Doctor Who (BBC). Notable recent acting work has included The Woman in White (film and on stage); Waiting for Godot opposite Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart and Ronald Pickup; and Chichester Festival Theatre's Equus. Callow published his own biography of Dickens in early 2012. On screen, Simon is best known for his roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love and Amadeus.
