Adrian Edmondson stars as Scrooge in The RSC's festive show A Christmas Carol

Leamington Editorial 5th Nov, 2022   0

ADRIAN Edmondson puts the humbug into Christmas this year at the RSC in Straford.

The veteran comedian, best known for The Young Ones, The Comic Strip Presents…, and Bottom – steps into the shoes of miser Ebenezer Scrooge as the hit show A Christmas Carol returns to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre by popular demand following sell-out success in 2017 and 2018.

David Edgar’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ much-loved festive tale of redemption and compassion has received acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

In 1843, Dickens decided to write a political manifesto, exposing and condemning the abject misery of the Victorian poor. Instead, he wrote one of the most enduring popular short stories ever written.




In one ghostly Christmas night, miserly businessman Scrooge discovers the limitations of his life and beliefs. He learns to pity himself and to love his neighbour – but is that enough?

A Christmas Carol runs until January 1. Visit rsc.org.uk for performance dates and tickets.
