In the spirit of tradition, Globe Theatre brings you this Dickens holiday classic. This family favourite tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter, money-hungry man who values wealth more than anything, including friends, family, love and even Christmas itself. A late night visit from three ghosts takes him on a journey through his past, present and future, but is it enough to melt his cold heart? Bah! Humbug!
