The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Hold on to your biscuit tin, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is roaring back into the West End for a smashing Christmas season!

Join Sophie and the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos!

A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem….expect to be surprised!


Adapted for the stage by David Wood OBE, undisputedly the leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children.


“This Tiger is the cat’s meow” **** The Times


“A rare and grrreat achievement” ****Mail on Sunday


“Delightful” *****


“Roar talent” **** Sunday Telegraph


Based on the picture book written and illustrated by Judith Kerr and adapted for the stage with songs and lyrics by David Wood, the doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea.

Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!
