TIM PHELPS TAKES TO THE OPEN ROAD IN THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
Despite being a born-and-bred Londoner, thanks to Kenneth Graeme’s The Wind In The Willows, I have concocted many childhood memories of sepia summers of yore where I splashed in ponds, skipped through meadows and snoozed beneath trees. It’s a gloriously rambunctious tale for the ages and The Pantaloons are probably the perfect company to capture its genteel anarchy.
Tim Phelps is always thrilled to work with The Pantaloons and, after the year we’ve had, he’s delighted to be back out on the road bringing this exuberant story to life.
It’s one of my favourite books ever and I hope Tim and all the Panaloons are having a wonderful summer with it. Grahame may have written that there is absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats but I bet he’d have thought a Pantaloons summer show would have been something worth doing.
