From the original story The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame adapted by The Steam Industry Free Theatre and the young people of Southwark.
Mr Toad wants to be famous. The fastest, coolest, bravest, brightest, most celebrated toad on the planet... the only trouble is celebrated for what? Because poor Toady's yet to find anything he's good at.
But that won't stop him dragging you and his friends Mole, Rat and Badger into a series of scrapes in the summer sunshine designed to unearth his (very) hidden talents and get London singing his praises.
However, when his ancestral home, Toad Hall (played in this production by Boris Johnson's City Hall) is threatened with an invasion of stoats, weasels and newts our man must knuckle down and employ every spiffing prank, wicked wheeze and jolly jape he knows to repel the jealous wild-wooders and wily amphibians at the gate.
Suitable for all ages this is family fun in the great tradition of the award winning Steam Industry Scoop shows, packed with jokes, tunes, puppets and celebration.
