THE BORROWERS by Mary Norton, adapted by Charles Way
Following the success of their last two Christmas shows, The Snow Queen and The Railway Children, the Maddermarket wanted to build on their reputation for offering quality original entertainment for the family and THE BORROWERS, written by Mary Norton in 1952 and adapted for the stage by Charles Way, was an obvious if elusive choice.
An adventurous, heart-warming Christmas treat for children aged 6+ and their bigger 'human beans', it is a wonderful story of the "tiny" Clock family, who live beneath the floorboards of a large Victorian house and "borrow" from the big people above to survive.
The one danger that lurks above our tiny family is being seen by the "human beans", so when the boy staying in the house discovers their presence their lives change forever as they are forced to face the dangers of the giant outside world.
THE BORROWERS was a popular BBC series in the early 90’s and in 2011 a BBC Production starring Stephen Fry, Victoria Wood and Christopher Eccleston was equally successful.
