Theatre company Horla is to bring its stage version of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol to Trafalgar Studio 2 this festive season, running from 21 December to 8 January.
Suitable for children aged six and older and their families, Horla’s adaptation will stay true to the original novel, focusing on the darker aspects of the story. Dickens’s tale centres on bitter old miser Ebenezer Scrooge, for whom Christmas is not a good enough reason to be jolly. But one Christmas Eve he is visited by the spirit of his late business partner and three other ghosts.
Horla’s previous Christmas productions include Grimms 2003, Rumplestiltskin And Other Grizzly Tales and Grimms: The Final Chapter.
A Christmas Carol plays at Trafalgar Studio 2 following the three productions in the Donmar Trafalgar season. Lower Ninth, which ends this weekend, is followed by Novecento and Les Parents Terribles.
