Lost in the Willows


FourTails Theatre Company presents Lost in the Willows, a new two-act play by Christine Foster. Coming to The Grove Theatre Eastbourne on October 13th and 14th.

Loss and loneliness stalked Kenneth Grahame, the author of The Wind in the Willows. He claimed he had only enjoyed one brief period in his life: his carefree childhood on the banks of the Thames. He becomes a reluctant adult struggling with a soul destroying job, an unstable wife and a troubled and disabled child. But it is Kenneth Grahame's obsession with childhood that finally leads to the greatest tragedy of his life.

Written by award-winning playwright Christine Foster ('Four Thieves Vinegar', 'Off the Map') and directed by Margot Jobbins ('Four Thieves Vinegar', 'Mayhem at the Cabaret Voltaire'). Starring Neil James ('God of Carnage'), Abi McLoughlin ('Confessional'), Robert Cohen ('The Trials of Harvey Matusow') and Laura Fausner ('The Railway Children').

Lost in the Willows is the second collaboration between Margot Jobbins and Christine Foster. As part of Brighton Fringe 2019, FourTails Theatre Company staged Christine's Four Thieves Vinegar at Rialto Theatre, a production receiving multiple 4-* and 5-* reviews and chosen as one of Fringe Encore's three "Top Picks" of Fringe 2019.

Tickets: £13.50
Duration: 100 minutes plus 15 minute interval.
Suitability: 12+
