C.S.Lewis's classic tale performing at Kensington Palace Gardens until 9th September, offer ends soon
Chiefs among University of Oxford-related writers and wordsmiths were J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis who were, at more or less the same time, both producing works set in parallel fantasy worlds; one full of hairy-footed, ale-loving short people and lost jewellery and the other accessed through the back of a draughty wardrobe. With Tolkien's (endless) hobbit songs and his runes and lamas bread, it is likely he smiled politely yet looked down on Lewis's comparatively simplistic fairy tales of evacuated children, fauns and speaking lions.
Into a 21st century, both sagas have been given the full cinematic treatment with Tolkien's terrifying, eviscerating orcs at times begging a 15-rating (but not getting it). Meanwhile, the source material for the Chronicles of Narnia adaptations, and all versions of Lewis's classic tales, cannot help but be ageless, family fun.
The best-loved and most famous remains The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first of 'Jack' Lewis's seven tales in which Peter, Lucy, Edmund and Susan discover the wintry wonderland of Narnia at the back of a wardrobe full, curiously, of old coats. What follows is the now familiar story of valour, good versus evil and the courage to be found in a child's imagination.
To witness the latest eye-popping live-action, video and puppetry version, you should head to Kensington Palace Gardens to see the adaptation by the Three Sixty Theatre Company, which runs until 9th September for which there are some discounts you might like to know about.
