A Christmas Carol
And you think your Christmas will be ruined by your weirdo conservative aunt from Scunthorpe who always talks about Trump - Ebenezer Scrooge's Crissy was interrupted by four actual ghosts who took him on a depressing time-travel odyssey through his miserable life. You know the jam: it's the classic fable of compassion, redemption, and heavy moralising, and it's coming to the Old Vic just in time for Jesus' birthday. This time round, it's written by prolific playwright and former Skins writer Jack Thorne, who's been making a serious splash on the theatre scene recently, churning out crowd-pleasing plays as fast as Future lays down an autotune-riddled guest verse. Lovable rogue Rhys Ifans will step into Scrooge's top hat, and Old Vic vet Matthew Warchus directs.
