According to Edinburgh folklore, when the writer Charles Dickens visited the city on a reading tour, a stroll through a kirkyard brought him to the tombstone of one Ebenezer Scroggie. Inspiration struck and A Christmas Carol was born, whose protagonist is Ebeneezer Scrooge. An Edinburgh Christmas Carol at the city’s Royal Lyceum brings the famous festive story back to the city of its alleged birth, with a guest appearance by Edinburgh’s best-loved Victorian dog, Greyfriars Bobby. The snowy streets of the Old Town provide the scene for a festive comedy about a miser redeemed.
