The Sinodun Players present ‘Wind in the Willows’ by Kenneth Grahame (adapted into a one-act play by Marilyn Johnstone), one of the all-time great animal stories and a true classic of children’s literature. It introduces us to the hesitant but curious Mole, the brave and kind Rat, the wise old Badger and – of course – the irrepressible Toad.
Join them on a boat trip down the tranquil River Thames to Toad Hall, travel with them along the delightful country lanes in a canary-coloured gypsy caravan, then accompany Mole into the Wild Wood which seems to him such a terrifying place, inhabited by sinister weasels, ferrets and stoats.
Gasp as these villainous Wild-Wooders capture Toad Hall, when poor old Toad – due to his impetuous nature and fascination for fast cars (especially other people’s) – is sentenced to twenty years in a dark, dingy dungeon.
Will he escape and find his way home? And can his friends help him to save Toad Hall?
Come and see this lovely show and you’ll find out!
