    No Gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood…

    Tall Stories returns to the West End with an all-new magical adaptation of The Gruffalo sequel, The Gruffalo’s Child. Opening at London’s Lyric Theatre for a winter season, the enchanting story is adapted for the stage from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s beloved children’s book that tells the tale of a brave little Gruffalo!

    On one wild and windy night, the Gruffalo’s child decides to venture into the deep, dark forest, despite her father’s warnings about the terrible Big Bad Mouse. As she trudges into the snow, she notices some mysterious tracks in the ground, which she decides to follow!

    Encountering some dangerous and hungry predators in the woods, the little Gruffalo is not scared one bit – after all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist. Does he? After huge success with The Gruffalo, the children’s company return to the West End, bringing with them their stunning storytelling skills!

    Regularly changing casts throughout their UK tours, The Gruffalo’s Child currently features Sophie Alice as the Gruffalo’s Child, Catriona Mackenzie as the Narrator/Mouse, Andrew Mudie as the Gruffalo/Predators and Jake Addley as an understudy. Combining mesmerising puppetry with interactive narration and fun songs, the play is guaranteed to entertain the entire family.

    Directed by Olivia Jacobs, The Gruffalo’s Child features choreography by Morag Cross, design by Isla Shaw and lighting design by James Whiteside, with original music and lyrics by Jon Fiber and Andy Shaw and puppet design by Yvonne Stone and Polly Lawrence.

    Best Seats

    SeatPlan Recommends: A variety of views are on offer at the Lyric Theatre! It’s best to opt for the well-raked Stalls when you have little children in tow, as this will guarantee that they see the entire stage.

    Alternatively, for a cheaper price, sitting in the very front and centre of the Circles can offer brilliant, panoramic views of the stage. Avoid sitting too far back, as you don’t want to miss anything!
