Based on the book by Helen Stephens’ rip-roaring story about hiding a lion and finding a friend.   

When a lion is chased out of town, a young girl helps him find somewhere to hide. It’s not easy – lions are too big, too fluffy and too heavy!  

Join Iris on a mission to squeeze and squash her furry new friend into a variety of sneaky spots, as Helen Stephens’ magical book comes to life with playful humour, dazzling puppetry and original songs.  

Adapted by Peter Glanville (director of Polka’s acclaimed staging of The Paper Dolls) with music by celebrated singer-songwriter Barb Jungr.
