A reinvention of Kenneth Grahame’s classic directed by Dan Bird.
At the height of an English summer, wet-behind-the-ears Mole meets Rat, Badger, and the irrepressible Toad and is thrust into a thrilling new world. But as winter draws closer, Toad's adventures take them far from the safety of the Riverbank and deep into the uncertainties of the Wild Wood, and hidden in the shadows of the lengthening nights lurk other creatures. And they have an old score to settle…
In the unknown depths of The Vault, Southwark Playhouse, you'll be thrust into a dark, dangerous but impossibly exciting world, and into the heart of an adventure. More than an audience, you'll become part of the Wild Wood itself as you join our heroes for car crashes, prison breaks, a testing of friendships and a battle of honour – with menacing Weasels hiding round every corner, ready to pounce. And in this mysterious place where deception is king, a different type of Toad will emerge – one who can't buy his way out of danger, and can only rely on two things; his unique imagination, and his friends.
