Farm Boy

Farm Boy

Duration: 60 mins

A Lichfield Garrick production



Adapted & Directed by Daniel Buckroyd

It sometimes felt as though time had stood still down on the farm - the old Fordson tractor quietly rusting away at the back of the barn, Grandpa tending his chickens - that is, until the summer his grandson came to stay and the old man started telling stories of what it had been like when he was a boy.

Following successful UK tours and a critically acclaimed run in New York, Michael Morpurgo's compelling sequel to 'War Horse' returns to the stage in this delightful, family-friendly show combining drama, storytelling and original music - a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories really can reach out across the generations.
