Whistle Down The Wind
Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell
Based on the film by Bryan Forbes
This adaptation of Mary Hayley Bell's celebrated novel and its film incarnation (which starred the author's daughter, Hayley Mills, and Alan Bates) was an absolute triumph in its English stage premiere and subsequent presentation at the Edinburgh Theatre Festival. We are extremely proud to announce its availability for production in the U.S. and Canada. When three rural children discover a wounded fugitive hiding in their barn, they believe him to be Jesus Christ. In a vow of secrecy, the village children harbor the stranger. When he is ultimately betrayed, the adults rush to 'save' their children with sorrowful consequences. A parable about faith, conviction and the fragile optimism of youth, WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND is a musical that soars with human spirit.
