The Bristol Old Vic production of a new musical play with book by Helen Edmundson and songs by Neil Hannon, based on the book by Arthur Ransome
Suitable for ages 6+
All aboard The Swallow! Follow Captain John and his able crew as they set sail to Wildcat Island on an exotic adventure to encounter savages, capture dastardly pirates and defeat mortal enemies.
Based on the much-loved book by Arthur Ransome, this delightful and gloriously imaginative production is directed by Tom Morris, co-director of the National Theatre’s Tony Award-winning smash hit War Horse and Artistic Director of Bristol Old Vic where the show premiered to critical acclaim in 2010. Swallows and Amazons is written by Helen Edmundson who adapted the National’s acclaimed Coram Boy, with music by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy.
Please note, there is a £1 theatre restoration levy fee per ticket.
The National Theatre in association with the Children's Touring Partnership presents the Bristol Old Vic production of Swallows and Amazons.
