About Christmas Carol - a fairy tale

1838, London. Jacob Marley is dead. And so is Ebenezer Scrooge… In our story, Ebenezer died young, but his sister Fan married Marley and, as his widow, has now inherited his moneylending business. She rapidly becomes notorious as the most monstrous miser ever known, a legendary misanthrope, lonely, and despised by all who cross her path. Seven years later, on Christmas Eve, Fan Scrooge will be haunted by three spirits. They want her to change. But will she? This Christmas, rediscover a classic British fairy tale. Refreshed and relevant for the 21st century, this traditional story inspired by the politics of nineteenth century London comes to life in the true Dickensian atmosphere of the world’s oldest surviving music hall, Wilton’s Music Hall. Brought to you by the team that gave you the sellout The Box of Delights, expect spellbinding magic, haunting music, and petrifying puppets in this triumphant retelling. The first ever female Scrooge on the English stage. Things are going to be different. Very different... Our production of Christmas Carol has been written especially for Wilton’s by renowned author Piers Torday and plays for a limited run of 45 performances. Torday’s bestselling series for children, The Last Wild trilogy has been sold all over the world and seen him nominated for the Waterstone’s Children Book Award, win the Guardian’s Children’s Fiction Prize and numerous others; Piers also completed the final novel by his father Paul Torday (Salmon Fishing in Yemen) The Death of an Owl. Stephanie Street is a writer, director and performer. Her most recent acting credits include James Graham’s Quiz, Chichester Festival Theatre and West End, and critically acclaimed performances at the National Theatre in Behind the Beautiful Forevers and Nightwatchman.
