When the show was announced and tickets went on sale for April and June runs, they sold out in a matter of hours. Today the company announced that they will take their production home to Japan at the end of April following a successful press conference in the country.
Princess Mononoke was written and produced for the stage in collaboration with Studio Gibli (who created the original animated feature) and is supported by British Council funding, and a sponsorship from Walt Disney Studios.
Whole Hog strives against 'safe' theatre and prides itself on being a company that offers young people the professional experience required to work in the industry.
I already have my ticket for one of the June performances in London's New Diarama Theatre and am looking forward to seeing what they come up with. Watch this space for what I see.
