Suitable for Adult Groups
By Kenneth Grahame, specially adapted for the stage by Gill Morrell. 'A magical journey into the world of the Riverbank and the colourful characters who live there ... a rollicking adventure story that is bound to appeal to both young and old'.
The rural tranquillity of life on the river bank and its inhabitants - Mole, Ratty, Badger et al. - is shattered by the eccentric behaviour of Mr Toad of Toad Hall. Following an incident with a motor car, Toad is arrested by his arch enemies the weasels and sentenced to life in prison. But he escapes, and after a series of adventures returns to Toad Hall, to find it occupied by the weasels. An exciting conclusion is assured as his friends rally round in his hour of need.
