A Christmas Carol
It’s Christmas Eve and old miser Scrooge is visited by four ghostly visitors come to teach him a lesson; his old partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. But as Christmas day dawns are these apparitions and their dire warnings enough to make Scrooge see the error of his ways?
Adapted and directed by Michael Whitmore, Quantum Theatre’s delightful production captures all the warmth and humanity, anguish and eerie portent of this festive classic.
