Outdoor Theatre: Doctor Dolittle

Illyria presents The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting, adapted by Oliver Gray

New for 2024 is the backdrop of Flatts Lane Country Park for the Illyria performance of The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle.

When Dr John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide.

Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So, he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew of Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, Dab-Dab the Duck and permanently hungry Gub-Gub the pig, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.

This performance is suitable for ages 5+ (younger children also welcome!)
