The Butterfly Lion at The Barn Theatre

Event ended

Editor's Choice

See a wonderful new adaption of Michael Morpurgo's Butterfly Lion when it takes to the stage at The Barn Theatre in Cirencester this spring.

Cirencester’s Barn Theatre is kicking off the new season with The Butterfly Lion, an adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s heart-warming yet bittersweet story.

Taking to the stage from Tuesday 2 April to Saturday 6 April 2019 and Monday 15 to Saturday 4 May 2019, the in-house production has been adapted for stage by Daniel Buckroyd, with the story telling the tale of a lonely boy in South Africa who adopts a lion.

The epic story spans more than 70 years and takes audiences from rural Wiltshire to the plains of South Africa, then from war-torn France back to England.

Expect to see the characters brought to life with music and captivating puppetry that will take you on an extraordinary journey for all to enjoy.
