The London Theatre Company presents the celebrated Leeds Playhouse production of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe at The Bridge Theatre.
Step through the wardrobe this winter into the magical kingdom of Narnia for the most mystical of adventures in a faraway land.
Join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter as they wave goodbye to wartime Britain and say hello to a talking Faun, an unforgettable Lion and the coldest, cruellest White Witch.
Starring Femi Akinfolarin as Peter, Shalisha James-Davis as Susan, Keziah Joseph as Lucy and John Leader as Edmund, this incredibly inventive production has been praised for its charmingly child-like magical effects.
Waking the child in all of us, the production unlocks your imagination – instead of elaborate tech-based tricks, suitcases become train carriages and bed sheets become gowns – like a beautifully designed and amped-up version of a child’s game of make-believe.
This critically acclaimed production reunites director Sally Cookson with designer Rae Smith, writer in the room Adam Peck, movement director Dan Canham, puppetry director Craig Leo, lighting designer Bruno Poet, sound designer Ian Dickinson and music by Benji Bower all of whom originally brought the show to life in 2017 breaking box office records at Leeds Playhouse.
This beautiful production brings new warmth to an old tale. Bringing an appropriate sprinkle of very down to earth magic for the festive period, you – like Lucy, Susan, Edmund and Peter – will be rewarded for suspending your disbelief and stepping wholeheartedly through the wardrobe.
