Plan your visit

When Lucy hears noises from behind the walls, she tries to warn her family that there are wolves lurking inside their house. But her family don’t listen. Then one day, the wolves come out, evicting Lucy and her family to live at the bottom of the garden.  But it’s not all over. Lucy gathers her courage, as her battle against the wolves is only just beginning. 

Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s spooky and hilarious tale comes to thrilling theatrical life in this frenzy of puppetry, songs,
and shadow-play, directed by Toby Olié and featuring original songs by Adam Pleeth and Carl Grose.

Age guidance

The Wolves in the Walls is aimed at everyone over 6. It is an enjoyably dark and funny show with an anarchic mix of puppetry and music. It is quite a simple story to follow, but please have a look at our visual story before booking if your child is younger or you think they might find it scary. There are some scenes with lots of shadows and darkness, and there is a slightly menacing atmosphere which builds up throughout the show.
