This 21st century version of the famous tale shows the creativity and a fun sense of the play. Ian McKellen’s depiction of the king is astonishing. The sets that are beautifully manifested at the Duke of York’s Theatre, brings us back in time. Director Jonathan Munby included beautiful scene stoppers and dramatic blackout takes that will take you aback.

BOOK tickets before it runs out.
