A Christmas Carol
Time Out says
Mark Gatiss adapts and stars in this spooky new version of the Charles Dickens classic
‘A Christmas Carol’ remains the most popular and malleable of seasonal tales, having recently become a seasonal staple at the Old Vic via Jack Thorne’s deliriously OTT version (which has played the last three Christmases on the trot), and also made some waves in a ‘hard-hitting’ BBC version that made some waves at the end of 2019.
For 2020, that connoisseur of the ghost story Mark Gatiss has penned his own new version, in which he’ll star as Jacob Marley, the deceased former business partner to literature’s most iconic miser, Ebeneezer Scrooge (which suggests a bigger role for Marley than usual).
Further casting for Adam Penford’s production is TBC, but it’s off to a flying start with the venue: after an initial run in Nottingham it will transfer to the non-more-atmospheric Alexandra Palace Theatre.
Tickets go on sale February 17 2020. Full schedule TBA.
