Based on the classic book by E. B. White, Joseph Robinette’s adaptation of Charlotte’s Web is a one hour play version of the story with a reduced cast of eight who portray all the key roles. We follow Wilbur, the runt of a litter of pigs, saved from becoming ham by a young girl named Fern. When he eventually becomes too big for the farm everything seems lost – until he makes the acquaintance of a helpful spider, Charlotte.
This play, by Nick Dear from a famous story by Mary Shelley, was originally performed with a very distinguished cast by the National Theatre, London and received rave reviews.
