Production Note       [Photographs]       [Printed Programme]

The Wind in the Willows, adapted for the stage by Alan Bennett was first performed in 1990. It has, however, been over 100 years since its publication in 1908.
The story can be read on many levels but I like to think that, above all, it is a story of friendship. It's therefore entirely appropriate for our latest St Lawrence Players' production, as ours is also a story of friendship over many years!
