Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

The Borrowers

Author(s): Mary Norton, adapted for the stage by Theresa Heskins
Company: Theatre by the Lake
Running time: 2h 00min approx

Below the floorboards of a large old house, we are plunged into the quirky, wonky, miniature world of young Arrietty and her family of Borrowers.

Making use of anything and everything they find ‘upstairs’, from cotton buds to postage stamps, the Borrowers are the original up-cyclers.

But Arrietty refuses to be boxed in by her family’s caution about the big world beyond the floorboards. When she decides to go exploring, she comes across the dreaded Human Beans and nothing will ever be the same again.
