Children’s Theatre: The Wind in The Willows

11th August 2019

The Wind in The Willows by Kenneth Grahame
Performed by Cat’s Grin Theatre Co.
Sunday 4th August and Sunday 11th August

Grahame’s unforgettable assembly of animals and humans are lovingly re-created with the Cat’s Grin Trademarks of simplicity, wit and style.
Fuelled by another original script that flows as confidently as the river it evokes, the three performers conjure up Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad; the Wild Wooders – Frightening Frank the Ferret, Sniggering Stan the Stoat and the Whining Chief Weasel; not to mention the key players in Toad’s Own Story – the Prison Guard’s Daughter, the Washerwoman, the Barge woman, the Car Driver, Policeman and Judge.
From an idyllic riverside setting, through the Wild Wood via Toad’s motoring misadventures to the final battle for Toad Hall, this enchanting interactive production about selfless friendship is told with high energy, humour and audience participation.
Ideally suited to the 4–11 age group (though adults have fallen under its spell, despite their best efforts to look… grownup!).
