Illyria: The Lost World

Illyria: The Lost World


Four intrepid explorers, led by the redoubtable Professor Challenger, travel to an uncharted plateau in South America following a few scant directions scribbled in a sketch book. They find flora and fauna beyond their wildest dreams, become involved in tribal warfare between apemen and indigenous humans, and encounter terrifying dinosaurs previously believed to be extinct. But when their camera is destroyed in an accident what evidence can they produce to prove that these creatures actually exist? Unless, of course, they bring live specimens back to London in “unbreakable” crates to reveal to an astounded public. What could possibly go wrong?

Gates open at 6.30pm. Performance approx. 1 hour 50 minutes including 20 minute interval.
Please bring own seating/rug, warm clothes and a picnic.

In case of adverse weather, the performance will take place at Theatr Ardudwy. All tickets are non-refundable. Cash only at the door.
