“Three bored teenagers left to hang around in a school gym start to muck about with a camera and some props and begin to bring to life Jonathan Swift’s novels complete with Yahoos, Liliputians, Brobdingnagians and Houyhnhnms. It is a busy week for writer Lulu Raczka whose A Girl in School Uniform is also opening at the New Diorama. This modern take on 18th century satire is aimed at family audiences but if you are looking for something for the younger members of the family, Wild, based on Emily Hughes’ gorgeous picture book, is in the studio space in a production that uses movement and puppetry to tell a story of wanting to be a free spirit.”

Overview

This perfect family Easter show is an adventure-filled modern adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s surreal masterpiece.

Lemuel Gulliver sails away to a world of strange islands and even stranger creatures – from the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput, to the giants of Brobdingnag, and the mysterious Houyhnhnms - and embarks upon an epic adventure of survival, unexpected friendship and self-discovery.

Gulliver’s fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life using video camera, intricate table-top sets and projection alongside live performance in this playful, funny and highly inventive show that uses Swift’s biting satire to explore reality and escapism, home and family, and the power of stories to transform our view of the world.
