‘I have always wanted work at the RSC at some point in my career so I’m absolutely ecstatic to be starting off there after drama school’ – Beth Alsbury

Charles Dickens’ festive tale of redemption and compassion. One of the most loved short stories ever written.

The smash hit of Christmas past returns to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre by popular demand following sell-out success in 2017 and 2018.

Adrian Edmondson will play Ebenezer Scrooge in David Edgar’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Charles Dickens’ much-loved classic, A Christmas Carol.

In 1843, Charles Dickens decided to write a political manifesto, exposing and condemning the abject misery of the Victorian poor.

He learns to pity himself and to love his neighbour – but is that enough?
