WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A Victorian family prepares a toy theatre for their annual performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. As the story is narrated, we enter the imagination of the children, who envision the unfolding story within the walls of their toy theatre, in an other-worldly realm where dancers inhabit the characters and unseen voices breathe life into them…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Perhaps the most unique adaptation yet of Charles Dickens’ classic Yuletide story, this version brings the tale back to its darker roots, along with some eye-catching interpretive dance overlayed on top of famous voices from Martin Freeman to Carey Mulligan as the classic characters.

WHEN’S IT OUT?

FRIDAY 4TH DECEMBER 2020 (IN CINEMAS)
