Writer Mark Hayward said: “We characterise our work as post-modern folk theatre.

“We take well-loved tales and give them a contemporary twist, making them accessible for new audiences and showing seasoned fans something that they perhaps had not seen in them before.

“We also like to give ourselves a challenge.

“With all the fantastical elements Gulliver’s Travels is almost impossible to stage, which is why this new production is partly a faithful literary adaptation, partly a sketch comedy and party a play about how difficult it is to put thebook on stage.

“The Pantaloons production of Gulliver’s Travels is literally going to be huge amounts of fun.”

Tickets for the show, which is suitable for the family are £10 for adults and £9 for concessions. The show starts at 7.30pm.
