Parson’s Nose Presents a Reader’s Theater Performance of “The Wind in the Willows”
Adapted by Lance Davis
March 19 & 20, 2016
Parson’s Nose Theater (PNT), the acclaimed classical comedic theater company, continues its 16th Season with The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. This 90-minute reading is a part of Parson’s Nose’s “Pay What You Will” Reader’s Theater Series.
The Wind in the Willows is an allegorical story of an idyllic England before The Great War of 1914. Mole, Ratty, Badger, and Toad share adventures along the River Bank in a time of character, loyalty, respect, and kindness.
“The Wind in the Willows is a collection of bedtime tales spun by Kenneth Grahame for his son, Alistair”, explains Artistic Director, Lance Davis. “The number of stories are far too many to consume in one go, much like Ratty’s supper, so in the spirit of Parson’s Nose, I’ve selected an introduction to the Riverbankers in Act One and The Adventures of Mr. Toad in Act Two.
“Please join us for a peek into the Easter Egg of the gentle English countryside where ‘messing around in boats’ is the only thing worth doing.”
The Wind in the Willows is being directed by Parson’s Nose Company Member, Ivar Brogger. The cast includes Alan Brooks, Lance Davis, Barry Gordon, Fred Thompson, and Jane Fleiss.
