The Greenwich production used ten actors, one child actor and a member of stage management playing the boar! It would be a challenge to play the adaptation with less than ten actors, but it would be perfectly possible to play it with as many as 20 - or even more if the crowd scenes are to be well populated.


There is a full score available for the play - which includes settings for the two songs. It is by Mia Soteriou, and terms for its use may be obtained through Rachel Daniels. Tapes of the score - suitable for use in a production - are also available.

A Vintage night out, deserving of a transfer to the West End.
Daily Express

A bit of a Christmas corker... it works marvelously...

Matthew Francis’s stirring adaptation...

Convincingly thunderous and delightfully tongue-in-cheek.
Sunday Times

Instead of simply pitching camp, the adaptation treats Hope’ story for what it is: a suspiciously enjoyable romantic adventure about the dignity of self sacrifice...

A rousing evening...
