Subject: Jim Broadbent to play Scrooge in West End

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/01/15 at 9:25 am

Jim Broadbent is to star in a new West End production of A Christmas Carol. The Moulin Rouge actor will play Scrooge in a new version of the Charles Dickens favourite.

The production has been adapted by The 39 Steps writer Patrick Barlow, who performed with Broadbent for several years as part of comedy troupe The National Theatre of Brent.

A Christmas Carol will run at the Noel Coward Theatre from 30 November to 30 January.

The Paddington and Harry Potter star can next be seen on film in Nicholas Hytner's The Lady in the Van, based on Alan Bennett's play of the same name.
