A Christmas Carol is a co-production presented by Barbican Theatre and Le Navet Bete. Following the sell-out success of our previous Christmas co-production of The Jungle Book in 2016 (which had extensive waiting lists) we are delighted to be moving our 2017 Christmas production to the magnificent Plymouth Athenaeum, which has a larger 330 capacity (Barbican Theatre only has up to 144). This follows us bringing Le Navet Bete’s Dracula: The Bloody Truth to the Athenaeum last Easter, which was a huge success and the first theatrical performance there in over 8 years.

The inimitable Le Navet are back for their seventh Christmas in Plymouth with their hilarious and unique take on the classic A Christmas Carol, co-produced with Barbican Theatre. A festive physical comedy treat for the whole family featuring all the much loved Dickensian characters plus a few extra for good measure – it is Christmas after all!

There will be 32 performances of A Christmas Carol between 14 December and 7 January, with a total potential audience of 10,560. As we mentioned above we sold 100% of seats for The Jungle Book in 2016 with extensive waiting lists.  Sales for A Christmas Carol are already ahead of those for The Jungle Book and we are confident we will reach sales targets for this year.
