The Lorax is a beloved tale from Dr Seuss and in 2017, audiences at the Old Vic Theatre will once again be able to witness the story retold on the stage. It last appeared during Matthew Warchus’s first year as Artistic Director with Max Webster stepping up to direct from David Greig script. Now Webster returns to bring The Lorax back to life, so that audiences who missed out last time now have another chance!
It is a story that has captured the imaginations of audiences worldwide since it was first published in the early 1970s and continues to find new fans to this day, so this should top off an exciting chapter for the Old Vic as 2017 roars along.
The Lorax focuses on the predicament of the eponymous creature, sporting his iconic large moustache, who lurks in the woodland and speaks in favour of the trees. He protects the trees in the name of the environment, attempting to stop the Once-ler, a businessman who strives against them.
With a clear environmental message and strange and wonderful creatures, The Lorax is classic Dr Seuss and remains a firm favourite with audiences around the world.
And once again it is up to Max Webster to introduce it to the latest generation of London theatregoers. The director has previously brought a range of shows to the stage worldwide, with credits such as James And The Giant Peach at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds, Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Twelfth Night at the Open Air Theatre and The Shape Of The Impossible at the National Theatre’s Shed venue, among others.
In a year that also sees the likes of Girl From The North Country and Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead take to the stage, Dr Seuss’s The Lorax runs at the Old Vic Theatre from Sunday 15th October 2017.
