A Christmas Carol

A World Premiere Adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

A fire is crackling, a hot chocolate brewing, and there is a ghost (or two) ready to tell you a story…

Ebenezer Scrooge is the miserable boss of Huntley and Palmers, Reading’s world famous biscuit company. With a little help from Christmas Past, Present and Future, will he be able to feel the festive joy this year? Step back in time with your favourite characters, and enjoy the whimsy and wonder of this yuletide production, drawn from the cobbled streets of Reading.

Written by Beth Flintoff, celebrated local writer, and directed by Reading Rep’s Artistic Director, Paul Stacey, A Christmas Carol is not to be missed.

Age Guidance

A Christmas Carol is a family friendly show for the festive season. Some of the scenes may be a little scary for younger audiences, so it’s recommended for ages 7+. Families with younger children may enjoy the environment of the relaxed performance on Sunday 12 December.

Access Bookings
