Judith Kerr’s original 1968 tale has been adapted for the stage by director David Wood

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is roaring back to Dartford’s Orchard Theatre from August 21-23.

Adapted and directed by David Wood, Judith Kerr’s 1968 tale is an introduction to theatre for children aged three plus.

When Sophie and her mummy welcome the hungry tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, and biscuits. He even manages to drink all the water in the tap. Sophie’s daddy isn’t very pleased when he gets home.

The story is a musical consisting of sing-a-long songs, magic, and interactive games.

David, is well known for his children’s plays and musicals, including The Gingerbread Man, Guess How Much I Love You, eight Roald Dahl adaptations such as The BFG, The Witches, and George’s Marvellous Medicine; and the Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom.

Judith’s writing archive, housed at The National Centre for Children’s Books, spans 70 years, and includes childhood paintings, drawings from her student days, and finished artwork for most of her published books, including The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
