In the news: The tiger who came to Tea in Dubai and Abu Dhabi theatres
In the news: The tiger who came to Tea in Dubai and Abu Dhabi theatres: The Tiger Who Came To Tea is one of our favourite family shows. It encapsulates everything that Art For All stands for. First of all, it’s a book – a best selling book in fact that most parents of the present generation had read to them as children. Now of course, it’s a stage play – adapted for theatre by the award winning playwright David Wood OBE.
The show tells the story of Sophie, a little girl who experiences an extraordinary visit from a tiger at teatime. She and her mother enoy the company of their strange guest, who has an insatiable appetite, thankfully only for human food! The bestsellling book illustrated and written by Judith Kerr, is a classic children’s bedtime story, beloved by families all over the globe.
And every time we bring The Tiger Who Came Tea to the UAE, it’s a sell out. This year marks the fourth visit for the show – although this time we only booked a handful of performances, all of them, resonated so well with young audiences. Here’s what the national press had to say.
