The Wind in the Wilton's
  • London Fringe

Poop Poop!

A brand-new adaptation of Kenneth Grahames much loved The Wind in the Willows by award winning childrens author Piers Torday (The Last Wild series) comes to Wiltons this Christmas. Set in modern-day London our story starts in Hyde Park during the spring time, with the adventure unfolding as it moves along the Thames and through the seasons, ending back at Moles home in time for Christmas and carols - but only if Toad Hall can be saved from the mysterious Chief Weasel and his ferret and stoat accomplices

The Wind in the Willows Wiltons is a fun, festive show for all the family, bringing up-to-date the Edwardian original with a playful wit and charm, with our heroes tackling modern-day climate issues (although Toad seems less keen), offering a tale of sustainable hope. There will be songs, puppetry and all the favourite characters will be there " Ratty, Mole, Badger, Toad and the Weasels. Not to mention a picnic or two

Piers Torday triumphed with his previous adaptations of classic novels for Wiltons: A Box of Delights, Christmas Carol and A Child in the Snow, this year teaming up with Director Elizabeth Freestone and Designer Tom Piper, with original songs by Piers Torday and Chris Warner, lighting by Zoe Spurr, movement by Emma Brunton and puppets by Samuel Wyer.

All along the backwater,Through the rushes tall,Ducks are a-dabbling,Up tails all!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
