How to Hide a Lion
by Helen Stephens

When a lion is chased out of town, a little girl, Iris, helps him to find somewhere to hide.

Iris embarks on a mission to squash her new friend into a variety of sneaky tight spots, as the misinformed town folk try and track him down.

Helen Stephens’ magical book, How to Hide a Lion, comes to life with playful humour, dazzling puppets and jazz.

Pigtails Productions, Polka Theatre and Oxford Playhouse present How to Hide a Lion by Helen Stephens, Directed and Adapted by Peter Glanville and with music and songs by Barb Jungr.

“Comes to life with a roar.”
The Guardian
