Toad of Toad Hall

 

The classic entertainment for children by A. A. Milne

from Kenneth Grahame's "Wind in the Willows"


Tuesday 2nd - Saturday 6th December 1980

The peace of a spring afternoon on the river bank is shattered when the irrepressible Toad arrives.


A large and widely assorted cast of characters, headed by Water Rat, Mole and Badger, follow Toad's madcap adventures through a series of colourful scenes to the final battle with dark and mysterious Wild Wooders.


In adapting 'Wind in the Willows' for the stage, A. A. Milne produced what is probably the best play ever written for children.
