‘An enchanting musical adaptation’ The Guardian

When a lion is chased out of town, a young girl helps him find somewhere to hide. It’s not easy – lions are too big, too fluffy and too heavy!

Join Iris on a mission to squeeze and squash her furry new friend into a variety of sneaky spots, as Helen Stephens’ magical book comes to life with playful humour, dazzling puppetry and original songs.

Adapted by Peter Glanville (the director behind the sell-out adaptations of The Paper Dolls and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt), with music by acclaimed singer-songwriter Barb Jungr.
