The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe comes to The Lowry in Salford for Christmas 2020.

Sally Cookson’s stage production of C S Lewis’s book will run from December 9 to January 23, 2021.

It’s currently playing at the Bridge Theatre in London and broke box office records when it premiered at Leeds Playhouse in 2017.

This adaptation retells the story with a mix of Cookson’s trademark theatricality, humour, music and puppetry. Audiences step through the wardrobe into the icy realm of Narnia for mystical adventures in a faraway land.

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.
