The Wind in the Willows
Will Tuckett's production brings all the magic of Kenneth Grahame's classic tale to the stage. With theatrical choreography and a wonderful score, it is the perfect family entertainment.
Follow the riverbank adventures of reckless Toad and his long-suffering friends, Ratty, Mole and Badger.
Will Tuckett brings his unique blend of action, dance, song, music and puppetry to Kenneth Grahame’s well-loved children’s book. The Wind in the Willows was first performed in the Linbury Studio Theatre in 2002 and has quickly established itself as a seasonal classic.
The animals of the riverbank – shy Mole, debonair Ratty and hot-headed Toad – are vividly brought to life through Tuckett’s ingenious choreography. Martin Ward’s charming score draws inspiration from the Edwardian composer George Butterworth to conjure up the English countryside, while The Quay Brothers’ designs use plenty of theatrical invention to transport the audience to a magical, riverside setting.
