The Wind in the Willows

by Alan Bennett, adapted from the book by Kenneth Graeme


1st – 5th February 2022, The Old Court Theatre.


One day Mole decides to stop spring cleaning, leave his burrow and explore the riverbank. Here he meets Rat and his world is changed as he ambles around the countryside meeting his new friends Badger and the impulsive Mr Toad. It’s a sweet story of friendship, obsession and exploration. And not to mention, incredibly funny. The plan is to capture the wonder of the outdoors and bring it to the CTW stage with an amazing soundtrack and incredible performances from our young cast.
