Adapted and directed by Tony Cownie from the novel by Charles Dickens
“Humbug! You think I have nothing better to do with my money than squander it on that manky halfwit dog!”
Edinburgh folklore tells us that when Charles Dickens was visiting the city on a reading tour, a stroll through a kirkyard brought him to the tombstone of one Ebenezer Scroggie, inspiration struck and A Christmas Carol was born. Writer and director Tony Cownie (The Venetian Twins, The Belle’s Stratagem) brings this famous festive story back to the city of its birth with a guest appearance from Edinburgh’s bestloved Victorian – Greyfriars Bobby!
An Edinburgh Christmas Carol is a Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh production.
