This exciting, fun filled adaptation of Joan Aiken’s classic children’s novel sees cousins Bonnie and Sylvia and their friend Simon the Gooseboy encountering a host of unforgettable characters as they discover that the wolves roaming the forests and fields outside may not be as dangerous as the wolfish adults plotting inside…

Writer Joan Aiken won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and was awarded an MBE for her services to children’s literature in 1999.

A magical, musical, wintry treat, this socially distanced family production is the perfect way to celebrate the festive season in true theatrical style.

Adapted by Russ Tunney
Directed by James Haddrell

What the reviews say:

Greenwich Visitor

 “The adaption is very clever, the acting is of a very high standard… so perfect”
Mobile Theatre

“Joan Aiken’s The Wolves of Willoughby chase is a masterpiece as far as I’m concerned. This classic had me gripped to the book, I literally couldn’t get away!”
The Guardian on Joan Aiken’s novel

“The story has all the ingredients of a rollicking children’s thriller; a gritty young heroine, absent parents, a wicked governess, an old mansion house with secret passages, moors inhabited by wolves and just enough unreality to make sure there are no nightmares at bedtime.”
British Theatre Guide on Russ Tunney’s adaptation
