A Christmas Carol
Author(s): Charles Dickens, adapted by David Edgar
Company: Royal Shakespeare Company
David Edgar’s socially-conscious adaptation of Dickens’s classic fable opened in 2017 in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The production was later revived the following year due to audience demand.
This festive tale of redemption and compassion follows cold-hearted businessman Ebenezer Scrooge, who—over the course of one ghostly Christmas night—learns to pity himself and to love his neighbour—but is that enough?
