The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe

By C.S. Lewis – Adapted for the stage by Glyn Robbins

Directed by Lucie Evans

Poulner Players were delighted to present the first local amateur production of this wonderful show. Based on the original story by C.S. Lewis, and part of the ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’, the story follows the evacuation of four children from London during the Blitz.

Finding themselves in a rambling and mostly empty country house, they begin a game of hide and seek. The youngest, Lucy, falls through a wardrobe and finds herself in an enchanted, snowy land, inhabited by talking animals and under the spell of a powerful Sorceress.

The children trigger a series of events that will lead to the culmination of an ancient prophecy, and ultimately either destroy Narnia, or rescue it from a frozen fate.
