Nostalgic, naughty and perfect for now, Malory Towers is a musical of high jinks, high drama and high spirits.

Darrell Rivers is starting school with an eager mind and fierce hearts. Unfortunately, she also has a quick temper! Can she learn to tolerate the infuriating Gwendoline Lacey, or value the kind hearted Sally Hope? Can she save the school play and rescue terrified Mary Lou from the grip of a raging storm? If she can do these things anywhere, she will do them at Malory Towers!

Adapted and Directed by Emma Rice (Wise Children, Kneehigh’s Tristan & Yseult and Brief Encounter), this is a show for children and all of us grown up children who still dream of midnight feasts, pillow fights and headmistresses like Miss Grayling.
