A recent survey conducted by the British National Foundation for Educational Research revealed that The Wind in The Willows was one of the most popular books read by children today. It may seem strange, with all its adult phraseology, subtle characterisation and gentle rather than robust humour, that this book should be as popular today as it was when it was first published in 1908. But the simple fact is that Kenneth Grahame’s story is a classic of children’s literature and children will always love it. Mike Carters’s delightful adaptation is dedicated to recreating, as faithfully as possible, the simple charm and magic of this timeless story.
The Wind in The Willows was first staged at The Gardner Arts Centre, Brighton (UK), at Christmas 1985 where it ran for 40 performances and broke all previous box office records for a Christmas show there. It has enjoyed numerous productions since.

Sample: The Wind In the Willows
The Wind in The Willows is particularly suitable at Christmas time as the seasonal element is quite strong, especially with the carol singing Fieldmice at the end of the show. However, this is certainly not a traditional pantomime, and there is no reason to suggest that it cannot be performed successfully at any time of the year, as indeed it already has. You will find plenty of opportunities for audience participation should you require this to be a feature of your show, and there are several indications in the script showing where this might take place.
