The Wolves in the Walls


If the wolves come out of the walls, it’s all over.

There are sneaking, creeping, crumpling noises coming from inside the walls. Lucy hears wolves in the walls of the old house where her family lives, but at first no one believes her. Her mother says it’s mice, her brother says bats, and her father says what everyone seems to say, “If the wolves come out of the walls, it’s all over.”

Lucy remains convinced, as is her beloved pig-puppet, and her worst fears are confirmed when the wolves actually do come out of the walls.

From the book by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean (Sandman series, Mirror Mask) and brought to life by a team of innovative and celebrated theatre-makers.

The show premiered at the Tramway in Glasgow in March 2006, before touring the UK for the rest of the year. In 2007 it was staged in New York, off Broadway at the New Victory Theater, for a two-week run. The show won TMA Best Show for Children and Young People for 2006.
