Tiger returns to the West End

Published 9 January 2014

Family favourite The Tiger Who Came To Tea will return to the Lyric Theatre this summer for another helping of teatime mayhem.

The family show, which was last seen in the West End in 2012, will play from 2 July to 7 September.

Based on Judith Kerr’s popular story book, The Tiger Who Came To Tea tells the story of Sophie and her mother whose afternoon is interrupted by the arrival of a tea-guzzling tiger with an insatiable appetite for absolutely anything.

Adapted by acclaimed children’s author David Wood, whose adaptation of wartime classic Goodnight Mister Tom won the award for Best Entertainment And Family at last year’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard, The Tiger Who Came To Tea promises magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos when the show returns in the summer.

Designed to introduce children aged three and older to the world of theatre, the family production has delighted theatregoers of all ages with its enchanting tale, which, according to Official London Theatre’s Charlotte Marshall, “will leave even the most hardened parent touched”.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea will play daytime performances at the Lyric Theatre alongside Michael Jackson tribute concert Thriller Live.
