A Christmas Carol

‘Every idiot who goes about with “Merry Christmas” on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart!’

One of the best-loved Christmas stories of all time, A Christmas Carol tells of the ultimate journey of discovery for Ebenezer Scrooge, notorious miser and Christmas-hater. Visited by three ghosts, Scrooge is taken through his past, present and future in search of the true meaning of Christmas: is it too late for him, or does the festive season hold the key to his redemption?

Io Theatre Company returned to The Cheltenham Playhouse in 2014, using their trademark mixture of live music and dynamic physical theatre to tell Dickens’ classic story.
