The Box of Delights

Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

In this new adaptation of the classic children’s story by John Masefield, Kay Harker begins his Christmas holidays by journeying to Seekings House, the home of his guardian Caroline Louisa.

But when a Punch and Judy Man hands him for safe-keeping something magical from ancient times, Kay has no idea of the adventures that lie ahead. 

For it is the Box of Delights, and others – magicians, witches, scallywags and villains – know its powers and they’ll kidnap, murder, summon demons and threaten the very existence of Christmas itself to get it. And when the wolves are running, who will stop them? 

An amateur production by arrangement with Curtis Brown Group Limited.
