For the first time ever, Judith Kerr's classic story of Sophie and her extraordinary teatime guest will be brought to life on stage at the Wyvern Theatre. Judith Kerr's The Tiger Who Came to Tea is one of the best-selling and best-loved picture books of all time. Since it was first published in 1968, it has sold over 4 million copies worldwide and is translated in over 20 different languages. October 2008 is the 40th anniversary of The Tiger Who Came To Tea.
The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger! The much loved tale of a tiger creating tea time mayhem is brought vividly to life in a show packed with oodles of magic, sing a long songs and clumsy chaos. Expect to be surprised!
