WORLD PREMIERE

Mr. Dickens and His Carol

November 25 – December 23, 2022

Bagley Wright Theater

Charles Dickens should be looking forward to Christmas. When his latest book is a flop, putting both his popularity and finances in peril, his publishers give an ultimatum: write a Christmas book within a month or lose everything. Adapted for the stage from Samantha Silva’s critically acclaimed novel, this tale set in the heart of Victorian England weaves a fictional take on Dickens’ past, present, and future into a comedic and poignant new holiday classic. 

A charming, comic, and ultimately poignant story about the creation of the most famous Christmas tale ever written.

Anthony Doerr, #1 NYT bestselling author
