From the novel by E. Nesbit and adapted by Louise Haddington, Five Children and It will play this December (8-31) at the Tabard Theatre in Chiswick, starring Lucia Jade Barker (Anthea), Adam Boyle (The Psammead/Father/Other roles), Lucy Mai Heathcote (Jane), Sam Lightfoot-Loftus (Cyril), Ben Prout (Robert) and Lizzie Treece (Mother/Other roles).
How often do you really mean it when you say ‘I wish I had…’?
On a trip to the countryside for Christmas, five siblings discover a magical, ancient and grumpy sand fairy whose wish-granting isn’t always as straightforward as they might hope.
A series of wishing adventures ensues, with some lessons along the way in being careful what you wish for.
Join Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, baby ‘Lamb’ and the mysterious Psammead for some fun, frolics and flights of fancy at the Tabard this Christmas.
Adapted by Louise Haddington from the classic children’s book by E. Nesbit (author of The Railway Children), and featuring songs and puppetry, Five Children and It is a magical, festive production for the whole family.
