Presented at Lyceum
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.
An action-packed musical adventure for the whole family, Swallows and Amazons is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.
This delightful and gloriously imaginative production is directed by Tom Morris who also directed the international smash hit War Horse, is written by Helen Edmundson, writer of the National Theatre’s astonishing Coram Boy, with music by Neil Hannon from the The Divine Comedy. Swallows and Amazons is presented by the Childrens Touring Partnership whose recent production of Goodnight Mister Tom received public and critical acclaim.
Swallows and Amazons forever!
