A thrilling fast-paced adventure for Wintertime.
Long ago, at a time in history that never happened, England was overrun with wolves. Cousins Bonnie and Sylvia must escape their new governess, the horrible Miss Slighcarp, and avoid the beasts as they make an epic journey through the snow. Along the way they are helped by a host of colourful characters and their own intrepid sense of adventure. Originally a celebrated children’s book by Joan Aiken, and then a big screen hit, this gripping tale now takes to the stage. Expect quirky characters, panto-style villains, a sprinkling of spookiness and generous doses of fun. Join us this December for another year of The Maddermarket's celebrated Chistmas show, and be drawn into a world just a little different than your own.
