Adapted from the award-winning book, The Gruffalo, London’s Tall Stories Theatre Company has toured in Britain, Europe, America and beyond with their children’s theater version of this monster hit story. In a production that has become the toast of London’s West End, Tall Stories vibrantly reinvents this delightful tale through its signature style of bold, multifaceted storytelling. This monster of a show beautifully captures the magic of Donaldson and Scheffler’s adored “modern classic” (Observer).
