Why See The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe?
After thrilling London audiences this winter, Sally Cookson's innovative staging of C.S Lewis seminal novel heads out on a hotly anticipated UK tour! This captivating production uses ingenious stagecraft in the place of flashy effects to tell the story of four evacuee siblings that discover an enchanted realm at the back of a dusty old wardrobe and the epic adventure that awaits...
What is it about?
After leaving London to escape the Blitz, the inquisitive Pevensey Children (Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter) are searching for adventure in the old country house of their guardian. When they discover a doorway to a mysterious wintry wonderland at the back of an old wardrobe it certainly seems they have found it.
But all is not as it seems in the icy land of Narnia, in fact, it's under the spell of the nefarious White Witch, whose tyranny keeps the world in perpetual winter - with Christmas never coming! Alongside the talking faun Mr Tumnus, the kind Mr and Mrs Beaver, and the majestic lion Aslan, the children prepare to battle the witch and restore Narnia to its former glory. Will the forces of good win out over this chilling evil? Book your tickets to find out!
