We are delighted to bring Unicorn Theatre's critically acclaimed show about the infamous trickster spider Anansi the Spider, to the Open Air Theatre this summer.
People say that a time long, long ago, animals walked on two feet and spoke with words, like we do. And back then it was known by everyone that the cleverest of all the animals in the kingdom was a spider – the infamous Anansi – the original trickster and the master spinner of yarns.
But sometimes Anansi could be a little too clever for his own good…
'A production that is totally engaging for both its young audience and their adult companions.'
