Krindlekrax (Rehearsed Reading)

Followed by a Q+A and book signing with Philip Ridley
Council Chamber £2

A legendary creature. Part crocodile, part dragon. A creature that emerges at night when everyone sleeps…

Ruskin Splinter dreams of being the hero in the school play. But when it comes to auditions Ruskin - small and squeaky voiced - is no match against the tall and deep voiced bully-boy, Elvis.

However something much worse than Elvis is terrorising Lizard Street. Something that is making holes in the road and cracking the pavement… Ruskin realizes he must become a real hero to save the street and all his neighbours. He must face the mysterious monster that roams the sewers: Krindlekrax!

Winner of the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize and WH Smith Mind-Boggling Book Award, Philip Ridley’s novel of the same name has captured the imaginations of children everywhere. This rehearsed reading is appropriate for ages 8-11.

This performance is a Rehearsed Reading of Krindlekrax followed by a Q+A and book signing with Philip Ridley.

Directed by Rupert Hands.

Casting to be announced soon.
