A new stage production of LWW

Postby coracle » Oct 10, 2017 8:38 am

There will be a production of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe in the Yorkshire town of Leeds this winter. When I saw this mentioned on facebook by The Chronicles of Narnia, I assumed it would be the same stage play I had seen in London in 2001, and in Stratford,Ontario in 2016.

However it looks to be a new production! (will update when I know)

The production company:

[EDIT: Videos didn't seem to work yesterday, but are fine today]

I'm living in Manchester, which is in easy reach of Leeds (an hour by train), so it will be easy to get there.

A bit of 'insider information' indicates that the script is a new one, and they have been developing it through workshopping and in rehearsals.

There has also been contact with the C.S.Lewis Estate, so I am looking forward to seeing what they have created.
