Iris embarks on a mission to squash her new friend into a variety of sneaky tight spots, as the misinformed town folk try and track him down. Helen Stephens’ magical book, How to Hide a Lion, comes to life with playful humour, dazzling puppets and jazz.

“Little gem of a production . . . enchanting mini musical.”
