The Gruffalo’s Child (Susan Elkin reviews)

The Gruffalo’s Child continues at the Lyric Theatre, London until 7 January 2018.

Star rating: four stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ✩

Show an endearing, caring dad trying to set boundaries for a wayward child. Add a bit of comfortable, pretend scary stuff and place it on a simple but versatile set. Spice it up with some upbeat music and you’ve got the Tall Stories engaging version of The Gruffalo’s Child
