The Wind in the
Willows Wilton’s, a new adaptation by Piers Torday is based on Kenneth Grahame’s much loved The Wind in the Willows and set in modern-day London. The festive show will run from 24 November – 31 December and feature songs, puppetry and all the favoured characters.
Hot on the heels of a sensational run in New York, the critically acclaimed, genre-defying new show Only an Octave Apart makes its UK debut at Wilton’s (28 September–22 October) starring Justin Vivian Bond and Anthony Roth Costanzo. Carving a new pathway between opera and politically subversive cabaret, this joyous and surprising musical fantasia revels in everything strange and beautiful.
For those seeking drama, Fuel presents the world premiere of David Farr’s new play A Dead Body in Taos [26 October – 12 November]: Billed as “part mystery, part sci-fi epic” it’s an intimate study of loss and bereavement starring Gemma Lawrence and Eve Ponsonby.
Bringing world-class music and a brand-new show to the Wilton’s stage, the legendary Olivier award winning and Grammy nominated post-punk, cult cabaret super stars the Tiger Lillies return with a new narrative concert; The Last Days of Mankind [06 – 17 September].
For a night of laughs, Phil McIntyre Live Ltd presents Harry Hill: Experiments in Entertainment 3 [20 – 24 September]. The three-time British Comedy Award winner and star of Harry’s Hill TV Burp promises to will leave the house howling.
Attenborough and his Animals [30 August – 03 September] is a family friendly entertainment show bringing the magic of David Attenborough live to the stage. Incorporating an epic display of clowning and physical theatre, two hapless fools recreate wonderful scenes of the natural world including a vast range of animals from blue whales to racer snakes and iguanas.
The new season includes Charles Court Opera presenting a 21st century inventive reimagining of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Patience [24-26 August]. Brimming with biting humour, over the top characters, and music that is by turns toe-tapping and sumptuous, it is a satire of the aesthetic movement that gained the support of Oscar Wilde.
More music-filled nights are provided by Carradine’s Cockney Sing-along [15 November] and OneTrackMinds [16 November] and Sappho: Words More Naked Than Flesh [14 November] from Poet In The City.
