Judith Kerr's much-loved children's tale The Tiger Who Came to Tea is back at the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a limited two-month run.

Sophie and her mum are sitting down for tea when all of a sudden the doorbell rings. Imagine their surprise when they open the door to a stripy tiger! He quickly invites himself in and starts guzzling all of their tea, turning their house upside-down with all of his clumsy chaos.

The happy tale is jam-packed full of teatime mayhem and singalong songs that will have your whole family grinning from ear to ear.

Judith Kerr's best-selling children's book

The Olivier Award-nominated show has been adapted for the stage from Judith Kerr's illustrated children's book which has sold an incredible 10 million copies since its release in 1968.
