This delightful stage adaptation combines all the joy and mystery of Kenneth Grahame’s much-loved classic with the lightness of touch and playful theatricality that award-winning playwright Mike Kenny is known for.

Tired of spring-cleaning, Mole leaves Mole End and ventures out to the riverbank, where he befriends the resourceful Ratty, the gruff Badger and the infamous Toad of Toad Hall (Poop-poop!). Together they explore the Wide World, and the Wild Wood, and try to keep Toad out of trouble…!

With ample opportunities for creativity on stage and wonderful character parts for actors, it is ideal for schools and youth theatres, or any drama groups looking for a fresh new version of an old favourite.

‘Mike Kenny’s script is funny, clever and pointed in its championing of riverbank life. It has a warm heart but is never twee.’

- The Stage

'Taps into the novel's prevailing mood of wistful nostalgia for a timeless, pastoral England.'

- Guardian

Mike Kenny is one of Britain’s leading children’s playwrights, and was included in the Independent on Sunday's list of Top Ten Living UK Playwrights. His adaptation of E. Nesbit's The Railway Children won an Oliver award for Best Entertainment and has toured worldwide.
