A Christmas Carol

Adapted by Deborah McAndrew
From the novel by Charles Dickens
Directed by Amy Leach

On a cold Christmas Eve, four spirits conspire to show Ebenezer Scrooge the error of his ways. His old business partner, Jacob Marley, has returned from the dead to offer him a second chance, if he can change his mean and miserly behaviour.

Nowhere are the effects of poverty more keenly felt than in the Cratchit family, especially by their youngest son, Tiny Tim. As Scrooge’s inspirational journey shows him both the hardship and love of those around him, he is reminded of his own powers of charity and kindness. This fresh adaptation of Dicken’s classic Christmas ghost story, set in Hull, is a magical, festive treat for all the family.

“A Christmas Carol remains as fresh and relevant today as it was in 1843. It’s a heart-warming and hopeful tale about how generosity can triumph over inequality, and how everyone deserves a chance at redemption.”
Playwright Deborah McAndrew
