The PumpHouse: The Magic Faraway Tree – Tim Bray Productions

Date: June 24th, 2023 - July 15th, 2023

Where: The PumpHouse

Don’t miss this fabulous, fantastical story by one of the world’s best-selling authors, Enid Blyton, adapted for the stage by Tim Bray. Jo, Beth, and Frannie move to the country and discover a ginormous tree in the midst of an enchanted wood. Things get really strange when they climb it and discover magical people living there, like Silky, Moon-Face, and the Saucepan Man.

At the very top, a ladder leads them to magical lands which are sometimes nice (like the Land of Birthdays and the Land of Take-What-You-Want), but sometimes not-so-nice (like the Land of Tempers and the Land of Dame Slap). Along the way, the children have some thrilling adventures! Based on four books in The Enchanted Wood series, this wonderful show will enchant you from the first minute to the last.
