A Christmas Carol
Date Posted: 05/12/14
Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is a classic part of the festive experience - as much a staple of the celebrations as mince pies and mulled wine. Whether you watch the Muppets version on the television while digesting a stellar Christmas lunch or see it parodied by the Simpsons or Blackadder, it surely features somewhere.
However, why not make this year's festive season extra special by witnessing this charming story live at the Elizabethan Middle Temple Hall in central London? The venue will be hosting the Antic Disposition production company's much-loved version of the tale from December 20th until the 30th.
Dickens' story itself, of course, requires no introduction at all. Telling the story of the cruel and heartless Ebenezer Scrooge, it ticks all the boxes for a real Christmas classic, in which the protagonist learns about the values of all things festive.
Previous incarnations of this version of the tale have been met with wildly critical acclaim for the Antic Disposition team, with the lead actors, supporting performers and creative team all receiving praise.
Critics have been particularly pleased with the use of the venue itself - the Elizabethan Middle Temple Hall - which was constructed in the 1500s and has barely changed since then. What's more, Dickens himself used to frequent it.
It certainly makes for an atmospheric location to experience this wonderful Christmas classic. Performances take place twice a day at 3pm and 7:30pm apart from on Christmas Day itself. Additionally, Christmas Eve will only see the 3pm performance.
Tickets are priced at £30 although concessions are available.
