British Theatre Playhouse and The British Club come together this Christmas to bring the collective spirit of love and thanksgiving to Singapore with its reprise of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Close to the hearts of the young and old, the timeless tale of redemption will be told in its full classical glory to ring in the festive mood in Singapore at the Elizabeth Suite of The British Club from 13 to 15 December. First published in 1843, the heart-warming tale relates the nightmarish journey of self-discovery by cold-hearted and misanthropic Ebenezer Scrooge. Scrooge encounters the spirits of his past, present and future – with his rude awakening prompting a critique against greed and isolation. Adapted from the lavish production by the Royal Shakespeare Company of London in 1997, the play will be brought to life by acclaimed British stage, television and film actor Clive Francis.
Clive’s exclusive one-man presentation of this epic tale has toured successfully in the UK since 2015, performing to a full house. Enjoy an immersive and incredibly intimate experience with this unorthodox retelling of the Christmas classic. “A brilliant actor and a famous play – this is an exalting experience you’ve got to see for yourself!”, shares Cecilia LeongFaulkner, Founder and Managing Director of the British Theatre Playhouse, Singapore. There will also be an after-show Christmas party at the club’s rooftop bar where audiences can meet the actor and get together over drinks, food and merriment.
Non-members may also dine in a club restaurant with every show ticket purchase. Don’t miss A Christmas Carol – a real treat for the family about the true spirit (or shall we say spirits) of Christmas!
Clive Francis first appeared as Ebenezer Scrooge in a lavish production for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1997, before adapting it into a one-man show, which he has toured extensively for the past 20 years across the UK, Ireland, and France. In 2016, he played the part of Lord Salisbury in the Netflix series The Crown. He has also appeared on numerous occasions for the National Theatre and has been seen in over 200 television presentations, including the original Poldark series. His several films include the iconic, A Clockwork Orange, Mr Turner, Lost City of Z, Voyage of Doctor Doolittle, to more recently, Official Secrets and as Lord Salisbury in Netflix’s, The Crown.
