The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase from a children’s novel by Joan Aiken was performed at The Mill Arts Centre from 23-26 November 2022.

Two brave and determined girls – Bonnie and Sylvia – fight against ferocious wolves, snowy wastelands and evil guardian, Miss Slighcarp. With their friend, Simon the goose boy, they are caught up in devious plotting at Willoughby Chase. Encountering unforgettable characters on the way, our three heroes show that courage and friendship are the way to win the day.

A thrilling adventure set in the evocative, imaginary world of an alternative history of England.
