Southwark Playhouse
Elders Company Presents

The Wind in the Willows

By Alan Bennett
Adapted from the book by Kenneth Grahame
19 - 21 Jan 2023

Ticket Prices:
£12.50 | £10 concessions

A toad dances in front of a willow tree.

“Some people are modest. Some people are not. And I’m not.”

Come and join the adventures of Ratty, Mole, Toad, Badger and a host of hilarious characters, as the Southwark Players (one of our two Elders Companies) bring this classic tale of friendship, fun and ferrets to life.

Brilliantly and hilariously adapted by Alan Bennett in his signature style, this adventure is suitable for people and animals of all ages (definitely not just children).

Take a trip to the new Southwark Playhouse, and float down to the riverbank this January!
