The Wind in the Willows


La Boite Presents
The Wind in the Willows
by Kenneth Grahame in a new version by Maxine Mellor

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

This is a charming, classic tale of adventure and discovery, in a brand-new one-man adaptation — starring Shaka Cook (Jasper Jones). Kenneth Grahame’s rollicking tale of four woodland creatures is one of the true enduring classics of children’s literature and writer/director team Maxine Mellor and Kat Henry have given it a fresh coat of paint. Join Ratty, Mole, Badger and the incorrigible Mr. Toad on their journeys, trials and misadventures around the river, the Wild Woods and beyond. Featuring a magical set with plenty of surprises throughout, and playful costuming and props. The Wind in the Willows will take badgers (small and large) on a heartfelt and humorous adventure that explores humanity, time and the value of friendship. For children aged 4 – 12 and anyone who enjoys messing about in boats.
