A Christmas CarolAcademy Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent makes his long-awaited return to the stage to play Scrooge in a new version of A Christmas Carol, which has been adapted by Patrick Barlow from Charles Dickens’ classic story of greed, grief, ghoulish ghosts and 11th-hour redemption.

From Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs Fezziwig, Patrick’s imaginative adaptation of A Christmas Carol will bring some of Dickens’ most memorable characters to life at the Noël Coward Theatre. Jim Broadbent will be joined by an exciting group of performers – to be announced shortly.

The play has been written by Patrick (who also wrote the long-running hit The 39 Steps) and is directed by Olivier Award-winning Phelim McDermott.

A Christmas Carol will run at the Noël Coward Theatre, St Martin’s Lane in London from November 2015. Tickets from Saturday, November 30 to Tuesday, December 8, 2015 cost between £10, £25, £35 and £50. From Wednesday, December 9 to Saturday, January 30, 2016, tickets cost £20, £35, £45 and £60.

Fifty pence will be donated to the St Martin-in-the-Fields’ Christmas Appeal for every ticket sold. The appeal raises money to assist homeless people with shelter, food, help and advice.
