Whistle Down The Wind '98
Plot: Based on the much loved film, Whistle Down The Wind is set in America's deep South in the late fifties. A young girl, Swallow, struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother discovers a mysterious stranger who she believes is Jesus. In a town where a miracle is long overdue, the children fight to protect the stranger from an adult world determined to catch the fugitive hiding in their midst. Andrew Lloyd Webber's powerful music combines with lyrics by acclaimed rock 'n' roll songwriter Jim Steinman. They fuse epic storytelling with intimate emotion as the innocence of children collides with the cynical adult world.
Whistle Down The Wind is a Really Useful Theater Company production based on the original novel by Mary Hayley Bell and the film produced by Richard Attenborough and directed by Brian Forbes. From a screenplay by Keith Waterhouse & Willis Hall.
