The concrete jungle is about to get wild because everyone’s favourite cat is coming for a chat. The Olivier Award-nominated show The Tiger Who Came To Tea is head back to the West End to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The magical show follows Sophie and her Mummy who welcome a very hungry tiger to tea. Unfortunately, the ravenous guest consumes all the food: the sandwiches, buns, biscuits, and more. It even drinks all the water in the tap. With Sophie’s Daddy arriving home soon, what is she going to do?

This musical slice of mayhem is full of sing-a-long songs, interactive fun and joy. It’s the ideal introduction to theatre for children aged 3 and over. And as it’s during the summer holiday, it’s a great way to keep the whole family entertained.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea has been adapted and directed by David Wood – Britain’s undisputed leading writer and director of theatre for children. His other works include The Gingerbread Man, Guess How Much I Love You, eight Roald Dahl adaptations – including The BFG, The Witches – and George’s Marvellous Medicine; and the Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea was first performed at the Bloomsbury Theatre in 2008, prior to a national UK tour. The production has since gone on to tour nationally and internationally, playing four smash-hit summer seasons in the West End, Christmas seasons at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Arts Centre, as well as sell-out dates in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Bahrain and was nominated for the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Family Entertainment. The show contains magical illusions designed by the President of the Magic Circle, Scott Penrose.

David’s stage-adaptation of Judith Kerr’s beloved children’s picture book (which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary since publication) will open at Piccadilly Theatre on 28 June, playing until 9 September.
