Theatre by the Lake’s Firework-Maker’s Daughter is an explosive festive adventure

Adapted by Stephen Russell from Philip Pullman’s The Firework-Maker’s Daughter, this explosive festive adventure has all the best elements of a traditional British pantomime.

The production is set in the East with a king, a band of pirates/performers, and a father bringing up his only child, daughter Lila, alone.

Vera Chok as Lila and her street urchin friend Chulak played by Mitesh Soni may be at the heart of the storyline, but the life-size white elephant steals the show; from the moment the giant enters the production moves up a gear.
