The Lost World

Wednesday 23 August 2017 18:00 - Wednesday 23 August 2017 20:00

Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg borrowed this title for the sequel to the book/film Jurassic Park. Thanks to them it now tells you exactly what your going to get in Illyria's summer production: Dinosaurs!  

Storytellers across the ages have spun yarns about adventurers' travels to strange lands and the monsters they meet there. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story transcends all previous versions because his adventurers were the first to bring the monsters back! 

Four intrepid explorers, led by the redoubtable Professor Challenger, travel to an uncharted plateau in South America following a few scant directions scribbled in a sketch book.  They find a world beyond beyond their wildest dreams.  But when their camera is destroyed in an accident what evidence can they produce to prove that these creatures actually exist? Unless, of course, they bring live specimens back to London in "unbreakable" crates to reveal to an astounded public.  What could possibly go wrong?

Please bring a camping chair or picnic blanket and dress for the weather, please note performances will not be cancelled due to rain.

Gates open 5.15pm. The play starts at 6pm & lasts appox. 110 minutes including a 20 minute interval
