The Old Vic is preparing for the arrival of Dr Seuss’s The Lorax at the theatre from the 3rd of December until the 16th January 2016 by releasing a brand new video which introduces audiences to The Lorax as well as rehearsal images.


Directed by Max Webster, it is the third production in Matthew Warchus’ opening season as Artistic Director at the Old Vic Theatre.

Inspired by Dr Seuss’s classic tale, the story tells the tale of a cantankerous critter who is on a mission to protect the Earth from the greedy, tree-chopping businessman known as Once-ler.

Adapted for the stage by David Greig, the production combines theatrical invention, songs and zany humour to create a show that delivers a message that speaks to audience members of all ages.
