This summer The Pantaloons are touring their frantically feral version of Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows – a delightful production that is coming soon to an open-air venue near you.

Join Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger on a wild adventure filled with motorcar madness, wicked weasels, exciting escapes and plenty of messing about in boats in this classic countryside caper.

The Pantaloons began life 17 years ago as an outdoor theatre company, busking plays for donations in parks and on the streets, where they developed an attention-grabbing, interactive and playful performance style.

“We characterise our work as post-modern folk theatre,” says Mark Hayward, writer of the new adaptation. “We take well-loved tales and give them a contemporary twist, making them accessible for new audiences and showing seasoned fans something that they perhaps had not seen in them before.”

The Pantaloons have picked up plenty of loyal followers and a lot of critical acclaim and have quickly become one of the country’s most prolific touring companies – and even they’re not entirely sure how and when that happened.

Grab your picnic and bring your whole family – in the motor-car if you must – for a wild adventure that children, adults and toads alike will enjoy.

Poop poop!
