Based on the much-loved film of the same name, Whistle Down The Wind is an extraordinary and uplifting tale about the transforming power of love.
Set in America's deep South, the story begins when a 15-year-old girl discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn. When she asks his identity, the first words he utters with frightening alarm are "Jesus Christ;" it's as if all her prayers have been answered. The girl and the town's other children vow to protect the stranger from the world that waits outside while the townspeople are determined to catch an escaped fugitive.
From the creative team of Andrew Lloyd Webber (composer) and Jim Steinman (lyricist), Whistle Down The Wind features multi-award-winning songs including one of the most popular hits of recent times, "No Matter What" (Boyzone), and a powerful all new staging that combines epic storytelling with intimate emotion as the innocence of children collides with the cynicism of the adult world.
