The Snail And The Whale: Tall StoriesA favourite with young readers, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's picture book, The Snail and the Whale about an unlikely pairing and an incredible journey, comes to life on stage. The live version is brought to the stage by Tall Stories who have already successfully adapted Donaldson/Scheffler books The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom for the stage. In this latest adaptation a seafaring father tells his girl of a small snail who has a big adventure when it hitches a ride on the tail of the whale. They weather stormy seas, meeting sharks and penguins along the way. And the little snail proves to be a hero when its snail trail writes a message which saves the whale. A wonderful adaptation of a favourite book by former Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson. Recommended for ages 4+

 

About The Albany

Originally established in 1894 as the Deptford Fund, The Albany has a long history of entertaining within the Deptford community. But it was in the early 1970s that the theatre in its current guise really got going when a fringe theatre group set up home here under the direction of Paul Curno. More about The Albany
