Gulliver's Travels (2017)
This summer, voyage to unknown lands and lose yourself in a world of mythical creatures as Jonathan Swift’s classic satire is brought to life on stage.
Washed ashore by a devastating shipwreck, Lemuel Gulliver sets out on a whirlwind expedition. Captured by the miniature beings of Lilliput and exploited by the giants of Brobdingnag, Gulliver finds himself face-to-face with new civilisation and is forced to journey through wild lands. Step aboard, the adventure awaits…
Reviving our hugely successful 2015 production at Lyric Belfast, Gulliver’s Travels returns to Northern Ireland this summer, written by stand-up comedian Andrew Doyle and directed by Des Kennedy, Associate Director of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The show features original music by platinum-selling singer-songwriter Duke Special, evoking a magical world like no other.
