A wondrous world, a different perspective.

This perfect family Easter show is an adventure-filled modern adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s surreal masterpiece.

Three bored teenagers left behind in the school gym. Together, with camera, projector and props, they bring vividly to life Gulliver’s adventures of brutish Yahoos, belligerent Lilliputians, giant Brobdingnagians and wise Houyhnhnms.

Award-winning film and theatre director Sam Yates (one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow 2016) and TV screenwriter and playwright Lulu Raczka blend film and live performance in this playful, funny and highly inventive production that uses Swift’s biting satire to view our own world from a very different angle.
