Tony winner Owen Teale will play Scrooge in Jack Thorne's award-winning adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, which will return to The Old Vic November 12–January 7, 2023.

The production of the Dickens classic will be directed by Old Vic Artistic Director Matthew Warchus.

Teale starred as Torvald Helmer in the 1997 Broadway revival of A Doll's House, winning the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Play. On screen, he is best known for playing Alliser Thorne in HBO's hit drama Game of Thrones.

The production also has set and costume design by Rob Howell, composition and arrangements by Christopher Nightingale, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker, movement by Lizzi Gee, casting by Jessica Ronane, and voice by Charlie Hughes-D’Aeth. Joe Austin serves as the associate director.

The venue has also begun its search for this year's charity to support through post-show collections. The Old Vic has raised over £1 million during the last five years for food-poverty focused charities, including Field Lane, The Felix Project, Coram Beanstalk, FoodCycle and Fareshare

"It’s always incredible to see the support and generosity of The Old Vic’s audiences throughout the year. Raising over £1 million through A Christmas Carol post-show collections is not only a wonderful milestone but also a testament to that generosity of spirit," shared director Warchus. 

A Christmas Carol opened at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre November 20, 2019, following several holiday runs at The Old Vic in London. The production won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Adaptation and took home five 2020 Tony Awards: Best Original Score (Christopher Nightingale), Best Scenic Design of a Play (Rob Howell), Best Costume Design of a Play (Howell), Best Lighting Design of a Play (Hugh Vanstone), and Best Sound Design of a Play (Simon Baker).
