The Borrowers

Saturday 22 November–Saturday 31 January 2015

A New Vic production

by Mary Norton, adapted and directed by Theresa Heskins

The classic family adventure brought to the stage by the creative team behind brilliant New Vic Christmas shows The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan . . .

The Borrowers live happily in a perfect little home under the floorboards of a quiet old house. But, when young Arrietty gets itchy feet and decides to go exploring, their secret is out and nothing will ever be the same again.

With magical storytelling, original music and thrilling, live-on-stage effects, follow us into the Borrowers’ hidden world. For little people and for grown-up ‘human beans’, it’s another special Christmas round at the New Vic.
