Overview, Cast and Creatives
|**This show is at the Vaudeville Theatre, though it is being produced by the National Theatre**
All aboard The Swallow! Follow Captain John and his able crew as they set sail to Wildcat Island on an exotic adventure to encounter savages, capture dastardly pirates and defeat mortal enemies.
An action-packed musical adventure for the whole family, Swallows and Amazons is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.
Based on the much-loved book by Arthur Ransome, this delightful and gloriously imaginative production is directed by Tom Morris, co-director of the National Theatre’s Tony Award-winning smash hit War Horse and Artistic Director of Bristol Old Vic where the show premiered to critical acclaim in 2010. Swallows and Amazons is written by Helen Edmundson who adapted the National’s acclaimed Coram Boy, with music by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy.
