Christmas at the Lyric

Watership Down

Based on the book by Richard Adams
Adapted by Rona Munro
Directed and designed by Melly Still

Join a band of kung fu kicking rebel rabbits on the ultimate adventure!

Cracking Christmas shows are a Lyric tradition. After the thrills and spills of The Firework-Maker’s Daughter and The Magic Carpet comes the greatly anticipated new adaptation of Watership Down - brought to life by acclaimed director Melly Still (Coram Boy).

When Fiver senses danger, a small band of rabbits make a hurried escape in search of safety - a high place, where they can spot enemies for miles around. They must stick together, be quick, and be cunning. But the real threat to their future is greater than a thousand enemies, and they will risk their lives to overcome it…

With giant bouncing lettuces, carrot pogo sticks, martial arts and live music, this heart-warming, triumphant adventure will have the whole family on the edge of their seats!


A Lyric Hammersmith production.
