The Box of DelightsNational treasure Matthew Kelly and West End star Josefina Gabrielle appear in an enchanting reworking of The Box of Delights, the Christmas classic by John Masefield, staged in the gloriously Christmassy surroundings ofWilton's Music Hall. This brand new stage show, written by children's author Piers Torday (whose behind the bestselling Last Wild trilogy and new novel There May Be A Castle), tells the story of young orphan Kay Harker, the boy who must save Christmas. On the train home for the holidays he encounters an old magician who tasks him with protecting his Box of Delights, a wondrous device with time travelling powers. An exciting time-travel adventure brought to life with Justin Audibert directing and Olivier award-winning Tom Piper designing.
