Sorry this event has already happened.

Performed by a multi-tasking cast of just four actors and laced with atmospheric and cheekily rewritten Christmas carols, this fresh take on the much-loved fable is a festive comedy of terrors.

Eloisa Scrooge is the world’s worst boss, until she’s nominated for a Christmas Eve makeover from an exuberant trio of queer ghosts.

Taking her back to her past, and forwards to the shocking future that awaits her if she doesn’t change her ways, they show her a life that’s lost its way, and her impact on those around her – most of all her beleaguered assistant Bobbi Cratchitt.

Director Andrew Beckett: You might think London needs another A Christmas Carol like Scrooge needs a lottery ticket but we’re bringing you the heart-warming festive favourite like you’ve never seen it before: funnier, shorter, ruder and camper, yet with everything that we love about Dickens’ magical and moving story intact, with a few fun twists along the way.
