Poet John Masefield’s 1935 holiday favourite, The Box of Delights, is adapted for the stage. The show returns to Wilton's after impressing audiences last year.
It tells the story of a young boy, Kay Harker, charged by a
powerful magician with protecting the wondrous Box of Delights, an ingenious
device with time travelling powers. But will he be able to safeguard the
mysterious contraption from evil sorcerer Abner Brown, who will stop at nothing
to get his hands on it?
The vaulted ceilings and opulent frescoes of Wilton’s Music Hall, an
architectural gem of the old East End, provide an atmospheric setting for this
production. Children of all ages will be enchanted by the play’s fairy-tales and
folklore, while young Harry Potter fans will undoubtedly appreciate a hefty
dose of magic. And with advent calendars being opened all over London, who will
be able to resist the show’s Christmas spirit?
