Bristol-based Wise Children return with Enid Blyton’s tale set in a girls’ boarding school -“nostalgic, naughty and perfect for now (…) the original ‘Girl Power’ story.”
Expect high jinks, high drama and high spirits, all set to sensational live music and breathtaking animation.
Darrell Rivers is starting school with an eager mind and fierce heart.
Unfortunately she also has a quick temper! Can she learn to tolerate the infuriating Gwendoline Lacey, or value the kind hearted Sally Hope? Can she save the school play and rescue terrified Mary Lou from the grip of a raging storm? If she can do these things anywhere, she will do them at Malory Towers!
Adapted and directed by Emma Rice (Romantics Anonymous, Tristan & Yseult, The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk and Brief Encounter), this is a show for girls, boys and all us grown-up children who still dream of midnight feasts and Cornish clifftops.
A Wise Children and York Theatre Royal co-production in association with Bristol Old Vic and Bristol City Council.
