“Toby Hulse manages to combine the charm of the original with a real sense of playfulness and energy… The Wind in the Willows is a fantastic alternative to the glitz of celebrity filled pantomimes and is a real Christmas gem.” –A Younger Theatre, UK
“Toby Hulse’s intelligent and witty adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale is lovingly brought to life and is simply magical and a must see for all the family this Christmas.” –British Theatre Guide
