12 September: The Wind in the Willows (outdoor theatre)

Outdoor Theatre at Logie Steading with Illyria

The Wind in the Willows

by Kenneth Grahame

Back in March, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Illyria took the decision to postpone their 2020 proposed productions to the summer of 2021. 

However, the wonderful news is that this amazing travelling theatre company are bringing The Wind in the Willows to Logie Steading on Saturday 12th September, 2020. 

They are planning to do two afternoon performances - 2.00 and 4.30 - to allow for smaller audiences whilst catering for social distancing.

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame

Mole yearns for adventure, Rat adores boats and Badger likes peace and quiet. Into their lives bursts Toad who loves very fast cars and just can’t seem to help getting into trouble. But can the animals reform Toad’s character and evict the squatters from his ancestral home to restore justice to the world? Kenneth Grahame’s perennial classic is brought to the stage in Illyria’s inimitable style.

The show runs for 60 minutes with no interval.
