THE ADVENTURES OF DOCTOR DOLITTLE by Hugh Lofting
When Doctor John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide. Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So, he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew of Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, Dab-Dab the Duck and permanently hungry Gub-Gub the pig, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.
A funny, much-loved and exciting adventure, with a strong message about responsibility towards animals and the environment, this show is created by the same Illyria team who brought you an entire menagerie of animal puppets in DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD and a life-size T-Rex in THE LOST WORLD.
The show is suitable for cheeky monkeys aged 5+.
Come rain or shine, please bring a chair, all-weather clothing (but no view-blocking umbrellas please) and a picnic and enjoy the show! Thank you.
The Cafe is open for 30 mins before each performance, and during the interval, serving hot and cold drinks, cakes, ice cream & crisps.
Many of the courtyard shops will also be open at these times, some offering special on-the-day theatre discounts.
