Day 364 - The Lorax live from London's Old Vic

I love The Lorax.


I love the original book by Dr Seuss, who is the all-time king of writing for young audiences.


And I loved this production - which I saw live back in the days when there was live theatre.


I can't recommend it enough. And it feels thoroughly appropriate in the lead-up to COP26 in Glasgow, a cautionary tale about using up resources to make things that people don't 'thneed'.


Staged in celebration of the story’s 50th anniversary of publication, David Greig and Charlie Fink’s Olivier Award-nominated adaptation will be inventively transformed for OLD VIC: IN CAMERA into a semi-staged pint-size version to keep young (and older) minds entertained, enchanted and empowered with its central message of protecting the planet.

Dr. Seuss's The Lorax will be streamed live from The Old Vic stage this Easter from 14–17 April. All performances will offer audio description and captioning.

The cast includes Audrey Brisson, Richard Katz, Melanie La Barrie, David Ricardo-Pearce, Ben Thompson, Jamael Westman and Silas Wyatt-Barke. Find out more on our website.
