A Christmas Carol

By Charles Dickens | Adapted by Neil Bartlett
A Christmas Carol

The spirit of Christmas past returns to Tramway!

Following our five-star productions in 2014 and 2018, everyone’s favourite Christmas story is back. Full of theatrical magic and inventive storytelling, Dominic Hill’s acclaimed production captures the heart of Dickens’ uplifting tale.

It’s Christmas Eve; the halls are decked, the goose has gotten fat, and everyone is looking forward to their figgy pudding. Everyone except the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who refuses to join in with the merriment around him – bah humbug! But later that night, Scrooge is woken by some unexpected visitors who set him on a remarkable journey of redemption and change his life forever.

More than ever, we’re excited to celebrate the festive season with you all again with this 75-minute Christmas show. The heart-warming story champions community, charity, and compassion, and promises a memorable experience for adults and children to enjoy together.
