A new production of Emma Rice’s critically acclaimed musical adaptation of Enid Blyton’s Malory Towers, originally created with Wise Children, is set for a national tour, concluding at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall,
The Malory Towers company deserves great plaudits for putting their all into such a high-intensity show; it’s a charming piece but one that undoubtedly feels like minor-key Rice.
The halcyon days of school and the opportunities it afforded her mother has led Wise Children artistic director Emma Rice to adapt Enid Blyton’s classic boarding school story, Malory Towers, into a stage musical. The show premieres this summer, opening at The Passenger Shed in Bristol, before touring.
Following the success of Wise Children, Emma Rice will adapt and direct Malory Towers, based on Enid Blyton’s classic children’s novels.
