The Wind In The Willows


adapted by Alan Bennett
from the book by Kenneth Grahame

Directed by: Chris Hall

2nd - 6th September 2014

With the arrival of spring and fine weather outside, the good-natured Mole loses patience with spring cleaning. He flees his underground home, emerging to take in the air and ends up at the river, which he has never seen before. Here he meets Ratty (a water rat), who at this time of year spends all his days in, on and close by the river. Rat takes Mole for a ride in his rowing boat... An ingenious adaptation of the classic children's novel by Alan Bennett.
