Outdoor Theatre – The Lost World

Join Strange Fascination theatre at Holkham this summer for their best adventure yet!

Strange Fascination Theatre return to Holkham’s Lady Elizabeth Wing Courtyard with their brand-new adaption of The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Celebrating ten years of making theatre in East Anglia, Strange Fascination Theatre are director and writer Simon Michael-Morgan and designer and producer Daisy Plackett. They are a professional duo who have previously brought their adaptions of Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, and the award nominated Treasure Island (to name three!) to thousands of audience members, young and old!

They utilise the best acting talent in the region to create their shows, with brilliant actors involved.

Based on the original novel this latest show is an exciting and adventurous family story told with original handmade puppets, costumes, music and all the enjoyment audiences have come to expect over the years.

Professor Challenger and his band of adventurers explore a forgotten realm of South America, and encounter danger, wonder and dinosaurs!

“We can’t wait to bring our latest show to audiences in East Anglia. We have a great audience base and amazing venues on our tour; this summer is going to be a blast!” Simon
