About the Show
The Tiger Who Came to Tea is based on Kerr’s 1968 book of the same name, which continues to be among Britain’s best-loved picture book even after 50 years. The surprisingly delightful tale of Sophie and her mum’s tea-time guests returns to the West End after multiple successful runs at Theatre Royal Haymarket. The interactive storytelling engages audiences of all ages, and tickles their funny bones while taking them on a trip down the memory lane.
Adapted and directed by David Wood and choreographed by Emma Clayton, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is the perfect way to introduce theatre to youngsters. The mother-daughter duo is brought to life by skilled performers Stephanie Summer and Abbey Norman respectively, while Thomas O’Connell portrays four distinct characters (Sophie's father, the milkman, the postman, and the titular tiger) with an impeccable versatility. The Tiger Who Came to Tea breathes magic into a simple tale making it a must watch.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea: Story
Sophie and her mother are just sitting down for their afternoon tea, when they are visited by a most unusual and unexpected guest. Although the titular tiger is not the very first guest, a series of comically clumsy characters set the pace and the anticipation before the tiger steps onto the stage. The tiger wolfs down all there is to eat or drink - the tea, sandwiches, buns, biscuits, and even all the water in the tap. The million dollar question is what will Sophie’s Daddy say when he learns that it was a tiger who came to tea and snacked on all their food?
The show is suitable for all ages.
