For an alternative version of A Christmas Carol, head to one of East London’s hidden gems this festive season.
A Christmas Carol – a fairy tale is a new production running at Wilton’s Music Hall over the festive season, with Olivier Award-winning Sally Dexter starring as the first ever female Scrooge to appear on a London stage.
Known to many as Emmerdale’s Faith Dingle, Dexter has appeared in some of the West End’s most loved productions including Billy Elliot The Musical and Oliver! and won an Olivier Award for her performance in Dalliance at the Lyttleton Theatre.
In this production, Dexter takes on the role of Fan Marley, the late Ebeneezer Scrooge’s sister who married Marley and who, as his widow, has inherited the business and his reputation as the meanest miser in town. Notorious as the lonely, penny-pinching and downright malicious misanthrope and despised by all who cross her path, three spirits visit Fan on Christmas Eve to show her why she must change her nasty ways.
Brought to Wilton’s Music Hall by the team behind the critically-acclaimed The Box of Delights, this adaptation has been written by children’s author Piers Torday (The Frozen Sea, The Last Wild).
The production promises to be brimming with spellbinding magic, haunting music and out-of-this-world puppetry.
When: 29th November 2019 – 4th January 2020
