This Christmas, multi-award-winning comedy theatre company New Old Friends return to Corby with an exciting new comic re-telling of the classic family tale Swiss Family Robinson, directed by James Farrell (RSC and The 39 Steps in the West End).
When a family find themselves shipwrecked on a deserted island, they have to use all of their wits, strengths and skills to build a new home. As well as finding shelter and safety on the island, they (and their dog) must also make friends with the local inhabitants who are all manner of creatures, some friendly and some not.
New Old Friends have won national acclaim for their particular brand of entertaining and engaging theatre and this production will be overflowing with creativity. Delivered by a cast of just four talented performers, the show will feature stunning ship-wrecks, wonderful wild animals, glorious gags, marvellous machines, stupendous songs and witty wordplay.
Join us for a festive family island escape this December!
