Book Swallows and Amazons Tickets at the Vaudeville Theatre, London

About Swallows and Amazons

The Children's Touring Partnership in association with The National Theatre presents the Bristol Old Vic production of

Swallows and Amazons

A new play with music written by Helen Edmundson, with music and lyrics by Neil Hannon based on the story by Arthur Ransome.

All aboard the The Swallow!  Follow Captain John and his able crew as they set sail to Wildcat Island on an exotic adventure to encounter savages, capture dastardly pirates and defeat mortal enemies.

An action packed musical adventure for the whole family, Swallows and Amazons is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.

Based on the much loved book by Arthur Ransome, this delightful and gloriously imaginative production is directed by Tom Morris, co-director of the National Theatre's Tony Award winning smash hit War Horse and Artistic Director of Bristol Old Vic where the show premiered to critical acclaim in 2010.  Swallows and Amazons is written by Helen Edmundson who adapted the National's acclaimed Coram Boy, with music by Neil Hannon of the The Divine Comedy.
