SALLY COOKSON'S ACCLAIMED PRODUCTION OF THE LION, THE WITCH & THE WARDROBE COMING TO THE LOWRY FOR CHRISTMAS 2020


What's On Guide

The production, which is currently playing to packed houses at the Bridge Theatre in London, broke box office records when it premiered at Leeds Playhouse in 2017.
 
This extraordinary adaptation of CS Lewis’ much loved novel re-tells the story with a mix of Cookson’s trade-mark theatricality, humour, music and puppetry.  It will see audiences step through the wardrobe into the icy, enchanted realm of Narnia for the most mystical of adventures in a faraway land.  

Audiences will join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter as they wave goodbye to war-time Britain and say hello to a talking Faun, an unforgettable Lion and the coldest, cruellest White Witch.  
 
Sally Cookson’s previous productions include Peter Pan and Jane Eyre for the National Theatre, Hetty Feather in the West End and the Olivier Award-winning A Monster Calls at London’s Old Vic and on tour.  Tony and Olivier Award-winning designer, Rae Smith is the designer of the National Theatre’s internationally successful production of War Horse, and will be designing the upcoming West End production of Hello Dolly with Imelda Staunton.
 
Joining Cookson and Smith on the creative team are writer in the room Adam Peck, movement director Dan Canham, puppetry designer and director Craig Leo (part of the National Theatre’s original War Horse creative team), lighting designer Bruno Poet, sound designer Ian Dickinson and composer Benji Bower.   
 
Elliott & Harper Productions and Catherine Schreiber present this Leeds Playhouse production of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe on tour.  Recent reviews include:
