The Further Adventures of Dr Dolittle

The Further Adventures of Dr Dolittle

By Hugh Lofting

Adapted by Oliver Gray

Tues 1 June 2pm Anne Boleyn’s Woodland Walk


Following the phenomenal success of their 2018 tour of The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle, Illyria is delving back into Hugh Lofting’s amazing stories to bring you a brand-new musical adaptation of the Doctor’s FURTHER adventures with Jip the Dog, Dab Dab the Duck, Gub Gub the Pig and Polynesia the Parrot.

Where in the world will they go? Will they even stay on this world?! Which new animals will they help along the way? Will the Rats still have pithy observations to make? Is Gub Gub still dreaming about cake?

As we know and love about Illyria The FURTHER Adventures of Doctor Dolittle will feature a fully orchestrated score, amazing puppets and a plethora of songs that our audiences will be singing along to for years to come.

Illyria supports Equity’s ‘Professionally Made, Professionally Paid’ campaign for fair pay and working conditions.

Anne Boleyn’s Woodland Walk is a secluded open-air woodland glade in the castle gardens situated close to the Two Sisters Theatre accessible via the Lake View car park. You are welcome to bring chairs, beanbags, blankets, your picnic, whatever makes you comfortable without blocking the view of those around you in this uncovered setting. There are plenty of trees for dappled shade though you may choose to bring an umbrella for rain or shine. Social distancing measures are in place; you can choose where to sit along as you abide by them. It is the perfect relaxed setting to enjoy theatre, particularly with little ones who can move around if they need to.
