Wind in the Willows

Young Everyman Playhouse is taking on Kenneth Grahame’s well-known tale The Wind in the Willows at Croxteth Hall from July 26-28.

This version has been adapted by James Phillips, with conventional perceptions changed and roles reversed to bring the play into the 21st Century.

While the much-loved characters remain, this contemporary vision incorporates themes of social class, hierarchy and a struggle for power.

This outdoor performance will take in five different locations in an ambitious promenade performance for all the family.
