The Wind In The Willows

Canterbury Players adaptation of The Wind in the Willows is a well loved story about friendship, resilience and defiance. This contemporary production sees the friends struggling in a modern world of the vanishing countryside. Fast paced and exciting, this is a story about Rat, Mole and Badger who endeavour to save their friend Toad from ruin and Toad Hall from the Weasels!

Adapted and directed by Lisa Nightingale (Royal Shakespeare Company, Viola Films) from Kenneth Grahame’s novel written in 1908 this is a modern energetic interpretation of the classic story.  So, why not bring the family and join Rat, Mole, Toad and Badger as they embark on their adventures!
