Adapted by Mark Gatiss
Alexandra Palace Theatre
2020 - 2021
MARLEY WAS DEAD: TO BEGIN WITH
Mark Gatiss (Dracula, The League of Gentlemen, Doctor Who) leads an ensemble cast, in his own retelling of Dickens’ classic winter ghost story, filled with Dickensian, spine-tingling special effects. Prepare to be frightened and delighted in equal measure as you enter the supernatural Victorian world of A Christmas Carol.
It’s a cold Christmas Eve and mean-spirited miser Ebenezer Scrooge has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Bound in chains as punishment for a lifetime of greed, the unearthly figure explains it isn’t too late for Scrooge to change his miserly ways in order to escape the same fate, but first he’ll have to face three more eerie encounters…
After being locked up for decades, the beautiful Alexandra Palace Theatre has recently been restored and reopened. Experience this classic story, in the haunting surroundings of this old theatre, filled with memories and the ghosts of the past.
