Gorilla: Polka TheatreA theatre treat for the very young, Anthony Browne's award-winning book, Gorilla, comes to Wimbledon's Polka Theatre in a stage adaptation by Rachel Barnett. It's a chance for children aged 3 to 5 to meet the world's friendliest gorilla as Hannah's toy gorilla comes to life, taking her on a moonlit adventure. A suitable celebration of the 30th anniversary of the classic award-winning picture book by the former Children's Laureate. While the main performance is suitable for children aged between 3 and 5 they are also staging Mini Gorilla, a special version for 1 and 2 year olds.
