The Wind in the Willows - Relaxed Performance


What is the event?

This performance welcomes audience members with and without learning disabilities who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.

The inquisitive Mole meets Ratty, a water vole with a passion for boats. Soon the two are firm friends and settle down to life in Ratty’s riverbank home, surrounded by the neighbouring otters, rabbits, fieldmice and hedgehogs.

They have adventures with the ebullient Toad and his passion for motorcars, and brave the snowy and threatening Wild Wood to find the elusive Badger.

But can the three friends save Toad from the consequences of his terrible driving, and defeat their enemies, the hungry and wily weasels and ferrets?

Alan Bennett’s adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s 1908 story about the adventures of Mole, Ratty and Toad, has become a classic in its own right: faithful to the spirit of Grahame’s immortal characters while laced with Bennett’s inimitable wit, making this a delight for children and adults alike. Dale Rooks directs a Chichester Festival Youth Theatre show that perfectly combines humour and enchantment with a delicious shiver of danger. For ages 7+
