This Christmas, Kenneth Grahame’s compelling The Wind in the Willows is coming to Wilton’s Music Hall, in a brand-new version The Wind in the
Willows Wilton’s by acclaimed children’s author Piers Torday. The show will immerse adults and children into the charming and playful world of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad.
The renowned story is reimagined by Piers Torday and designer Tom Piper for the enchanting Wilton’s Music Hall; Elizabeth Freestone’s directorship will breathe new life into Grahame’s characters as they romp through London, starting in Hyde Park in the spring and ending in Mole’s home at Christmas, on the way fighting against the money-grabbing weasels with lots of adventures in between with their ferret and stoat accomplices.
The Wind in the
Willows Wilton’s is a witty, festive show for all the family, giving the original Edwardian tale a contemporary twist with heroes. Nervous Mole, happy go lucky Rat, outrageous Toad and curmudgeonly Badger have enchanted generations with their enduring friendships and this theme remains particularly relevant in Torday’s adaptation. It sees the famous four tackling climate issues (although Toad seems less keen) and offering a tale of sustainable hope. There will be songs and puppetry, not to mention a picnic or two.
