REVIEW * “The Borrowers show proves that the smallest of things can make the biggest impact. This much loved, classic children's novel makes for fab and at times belly-laugh funny #family theatre and entertainment. It is as relevant and appreciated by children and adults today as it was when first written, as evidenced by the 100% spell-bound concentration of the audience. This production is all the more poignant for being based on Charles Way's adaptation, first commissioned by Polka Theatre nearly two decades ago” (Mumsnet Merton & Wimbledon)
Suitable for children aged 5-11.
A Play by Charles Way, based on the book by Mary Norton.
The timeless classic bursts onto Polka’s Main Stage this summer with dazzling puppetry, original music, stunning design and plenty of suspense.
Arietty has lived her whole life deep beneath the floorboards, dreaming of the great outdoors. When her father Pod finally brings her upstairs to learn the tricks of borrowing, Arietty meets a human boy. But their friendship risks everything and the ‘human beans’ soon discover the borrowers’ secret world… it’s time to escape!
Join us for a fantastical adventure as the heroic Arietty and her family embark on an action-packed journey to find somewhere new to call home.
