The classic tale A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is coming to Tokyo this winter in a wonderful adaptation by international theatre in education specialists Black Stripe Theater.  This much loved and merry tale is set on the night before Christmas when a man is forced to look closely within himself and ask if his life has been of value.  At the story’s center is cold and hardworking Ebenezer Scrooge and his encounter with several characters – Bob Cratchitt, Jacob Marley, three ghosts, and even Charles Dickens himself.  BST has creatively reworked this tale to appeal to all audiences.back of xmas poster

Not only is this a great opportunity to see a live performance in English, but BST also offers you the chance to meet the actors and director in a Q & A session. We also include an opportunity to take part in a fun Drama Workshop based on the themes of play.

Students can see a live performance of the story they know so well and enjoy exploring its universal themes of love, hope, regret, loneliness, the celebration of life, and ah yes ghosts!

This production is performed by 4 actors who share the multitude of roles within the story.
