Olivier Award nominee Patrick Ryecart (The Crown, Poldark, The King’s Speech) will lead the cast of The Barn Theatre’s reimagined actor-musician production of Charles Dickens’ festive masterpiece, A Christmas Carol, as Ebenezer Scrooge.
A Christmas Carol, a new version by playwright Alan Pollock with music and lyrics by Finn Anderson, runs at The Barn Theatre from 28 November – 4 January 2020. The production is the final instalment of The Barn’s highly successful 2019 season of in-house Built By Barn productions.
Alan Pollock said of his new adaptation, which takes a fresh look at the classic Dickensian story, "almost everyone knows this fantastic story. But every time I see or hear it I wonder 'why is Scrooge like he is? What made him this way?'' And that was the starting point for this version..."
The full A Christmas Carol company includes Bronte Alice-Tadman, Jonathan Charles, Tom Chudley-Evans, Laura Coates, Connor Going, Grace Liston, Nuwan Hugh Perera and Rosie Zeidler. The role of Tiny Tim will be played by Trixie Cook, Georgia Dibbs and Scarlette Lavery.
