Whistle Down the Wind

''If all that died again would grow...''

Whistle Down the Wind 12th  - 14th July 2018

Swallow, a 15 year-old-girl growing up in America's deep South in the fifties, discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn. When she asks who he is and the first words he utters are "Jesus Christ", it's as if all her prayers have been answered.

Swallow and the town's other children vow to protect the stranger from the world that waits outsid - the townspeople who are determined to catch a fugitive hiding in their midst. As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow is torn between the two and begins to discover who she is and where she is going.


Andrew Lloyd Webber's emotive score combines hauntingly beautiful love songs and explosive rock music, with lyrics by acclaimed Meat Loaf and Bonnie Tyler songwriter Jim Steinman. It features No Matter What, which was covered by Boyzone, hitting number one in 18 countries.


Based on the original novel by Mary Hayley Bell and the film produced by Richard Attenborough, directed by Bryan Forbes from a screenplay by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall. With book by Patricia Knop, Gale Edwards and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Orchestrations by David Cullen and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
