An old house in rural England becomes the home base for four children who wander into an incredible country through an old wardrobe and help the country return to summer. In the incredible Narnia, they make friends with the frightened forest people who have almost given up hope for the return of good King Aslan, their true ruler. When Aslan was there, it was always summer. There is a battle to see whether this magical country will remain under a wintry spell or will, once again, know freedom and summer under good King Aslan. It’s a charming play about courage and the love of freedom.
