Thought-provoking, Great writing, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if it was very good and the cast were amazing

For a previous production

Simon Russell Beale shines in the perfect parable for now. The great stage actor heads an excellent cast of three in this triumphant and finessed finale to the Bridge’s fightback season.'

For a previous production

Nicholas Hytner’s production... delivers everything you’d expect of it. It is cosy, polished, grown up and suitably cockle-warming, deeply traditional, the antithesis of brash. It is egg nog in theatre form.'

For a previous production

Deluxe seasonal storytelling. The Dickens classic, as adapted by this venue’s artistic director, shakes its holly...The three actors make an archetypal tale fresh and moving once more.'
