About Gulliver's Travels
A wonderous world, a different perspective.
Inspired by the book by Jonathan Swift
By Lulu Raczka and devised with the company
Directed by Jaz Woodcock-Stewart
Wildly innovative, extremely fun.
This perfect family Easter show is an adventure-filled modern adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s surreal masterpiece.
Lemuel Gulliver sails away to a world of strange islands and even stranger creatures – from the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput to the giants of Brobdingnag - and embarks upon an epic adventure of survival, unexpected friendship and self-discovery.
Gulliver’s fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life using video camera, intricate table-top sets and projection alongside live performance in this playful, funny and highly inventive show that uses Swift’s biting satire to explore reality and escapism, home and family, and the power of stories to transform our view of the world.
Please note this show contains flashing light throughout.
Originally programmed for March 2020, we're delighted to present this show in 2022 following its cancellation due to the pandemic.
'Boisterous and inventive'
'It is magnificent... a voyage definitely worth taking'
'Surely one of the most extraordinary, ambitious performances on the London stage at the moment.'
'If you want an alternative to the multiplex this Easter, you know where to go.'
'A welcome opportunity to introduce children to a literary classic'
'Top-price West End shows have but a fraction of the emotional depth and intelligence of work like this.'

Previews 6 - 16 Mar: adults £12 / under 18s £10
