New Firework Maker’s Daughter Play
Posted on by Bethan

We reported on the Birmingham Stage Company’s adaptation of The Firework Maker’s Daughter, currently on in London, a little while ago. But if you live in the UK and that’s just a little bit too far for you then good news! An adaptation of The Firework Maker’s Daughter is being performed at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick – so if you’re based in the North, this is a perfect opportunity! The play, adapted for stage by Stephen Russell, will run until the 7th of January.

A charming and explosive adventure! Set in the tropical jungle of Indonesia, this is the story of young Lila and her quest to discover the secrets of the Firework-Maker’s craft. With her father’s life hanging in the balance she must undertake a perilous journey to volcanic Mount Merapi. Lila has to face pirates, spirits and the terrifying Fire-Fiend, but she is helped by her best friend Chulak and a lovable and resourceful white elephant called Hamlet.

Tickets for the show go from £10 to £22.50. They are available for purchase here. We’ll have a review up for you next week, to help you decide whether to go or not!

    Hey there, I play Lila in this adaptation. If you’d like tickets, email me and I’ll organise this for you! I get a staff discount. I had such fun meeting Rosaline last night. Hope you can make it!
