Following three previous seasons at the Middle Temple Hall in 2012, 2014 and 2015 Antic Disposition returns to the Middle Temple Hall with A Christmas Carol.

The company’s interpretation of the festive favourite features a number of original songs based around traditional Victorian Christmas Carols, interwoven with the ghostly tale of miser Ebenezer Scrooge.

A Christmas Carol has been expanded for this 2017 season  for a talented company of actor musicians taking part. The show is taking place in the atmospheric location of the Middle Temple Hall, a location known to Charles Dickens who studied law at the ancient institution.

For the festive season, the hall will be decorated for the occasion with boughs of holly, and mulled wine, mince pies and other traditional festive fare will be available to add to the Yuletide cheer.

Directors Ben Horslen and John Risebero said: “Experiencing Dickens’ timeless tale in this amazing space is the perfect way to celebrate the festive season, and we look forward to sharing our production and raising a glass of mulled wine with audiences old and new.”

This adaptation of the classic story includes a book and lyrics by Ben Horslen and John Risebero, and music by Nick Barstow. A Christmas Carol is directed by Ben Horslen and John Risebero, who also designs.  Casting for the production has yet to be confirmed.

A Christmas Carol will be performed at the Middle Temple Hall from the 22nd to the 30th December. For more information visit:
