Filmed during its run at the Alexandra Palace theatre last year Mark Gatiss’s stage adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’ is set to get a cinema release this winter – giving more fans a chance to see the acclaimed production.
The production sees Gatiss himself starring as Jacob Marley, while the cast also includes Nicholas Farrell as Ebenezer Scrooge, James Backway as Fred, Jo Eaton-Kent as the Ghost of Christmas Past and Joe Shire is the Ghost of Christmas Present.
In a statement, Gatiss said: “As the year turns again it’s a real joy to be bringing A Christmas Carol to a whole new audience. I fulfilled a lifelong ambition in bringing the show to the stage, at the wonderful Nottingham Playhouse and the extraordinary Ally Pally.
Now it’s time for cinemas to get in on the fun of our darkly delicious, ghostly Christmas treat. God bless us. Everyone!”
