why watch a christmas carol - a ghost story

Is it even Christmas if you don't watch a play that depicts Dickens' yuletide story of restless ghosts and Christian goodwill? Mark Gatiss, the acclaimed actor, and writer, leads an ensemble cast in his own retelling of the classic holiday tale. In his adaptation, this heartwarming tale turns into something eerie and sinister, amplified by spine-tingling special effects. If you're brave enough to go on this thrilling adventure, book your tickets now - the limited 6-week run is bound to sell out quickly!

The story follows the grumpy miser Ebenezer Scrooge's experience on one cold Christmas Eve, where he has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Punished for a lifetime of greed and shackled in chains, the ghost tries to convince Scrooge to change his miserly ways so he can escape the same fate. Except, he'll have to have three more eerie encounters first...
