‘A perfectly pitched piece of family theatre’
The Stage

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 doesn’t believe her. Then one day, Lucy’s fears come true when a pack of wolves comes bursting out of the walls, forcing Lucy and her family to live at the bottom of the garden. But the story is far from over – Lucy must gather 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. Suitable for brave children and scared adults.
