The Wolves in the Walls

Director and Designer
Little Angel Theatre – 2020


“Brimming with atmosphere and ambiguity, laced with fear and doubt and refuses to provide any easy answers…scary and fun.”
The Guardian


“The puppetry is utterly magnificent…Toby Olié has created a show that captures the spirit of the original text while also being clear in its own identity…a perfectly pitched piece of family theatre.”
The Stage


“The big USP of a production adapted, directed and designed by one of the UK’s top puppetry directors is – duh – the puppets: from the ambling naturalism of Lucy and her family to the mangy, snarling wolves themselves, the beings on stage are as alive as it gets without a pulse.

Time Out


“Its edginess is perfectly offset by the balance of humour and slapstick…This is an absolute treat of a show!’
Everything Theatre


“There is no doubt Olié knows how to engage a young audience by tapping into their imaginations. In this production, he has once again created something fun and engaging, full of mischief and with a powerful heroine as the central character…this pushes all the right buttons and will excite, amuse and delight.”
