A Christmas Carol


12 December 2023 at 7:30pm

The James Joyce Centre was delighted to host A Christmas Carol on Tuesday, 12 December 2023 at 7:30pm. This in-person event transported you back to Victorian London as you follow the heartwarming journey of Ebenezer Scrooge.

We witnessed Scrooge’s transformation from a cold-hearted miser to a man filled with compassion and love. The haunting music and captivating performances filled our hearts with joy and reminded us of the true meaning of Christmas.

Performed by Michael James Ford, Sinead Murphy, and Sam Ford, the performance took us on Scrooge’s ghostly journey to redemption, accompanied by a richly atmospheric live musical score. A sell-out hit at the Viking Theatre for the past seven years, it is the perfect way to experience Dickens’ masterpiece and share his world of phantoms, darkness, merriment, and everlasting goodwill.

“Don’t miss this delightful version of the classic.” Sunday Independent

“…fine dramatic storytelling…perfect for the season.” Red Curtain Review

“It lingers in the mind…it really is superb.” Donnchadh O’Laoire

The James Joyce Centre is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
