The Wonderful Wizard of Oz/King Arthur

Theatre, Outdoor theatres Free

Time Out says

The Scoop’s traditional free outdoor double bill returns for 2018

The name of the surrounding festival may change annually (this year's it's the London Bridge City Summer by the River festival) but Phil Willmott’s double bills of free outdoor theatre seem eternal and unaffected by the notionally shifting landscape around them.

Willmott has spent the last several years attempting to find kiddie-friendly routes into Greek tragedy; 2018 seems like a safer bet for the family – there's a new adaptation of Frank Baum's ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’.

That’s the one aimed at children, lasting just n ahour; and it'll run in a double-bill with Willmott’s much longer adaptation of Sir Thomas Malory’s 1485 telling of the story of King Arthur.

Expect lots of colourful fun, on a low-ish budget, but empatically worth the price of admission.
