Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax will be performed and streamed live from The Old Vic stage across the globe from 14–17 April 2021.
‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better.
Staged in celebration of the story’s 50th anniversary of publication, David Greig and Charlie Fink’s Olivier Award-nominated adaptation, directed by Max Webster, is inventively transformed into a semi-staged pint-size version to keep young (and older) minds entertained, enchanted and empowered with its central message of protecting the planet.
Written 50 years ago, The Lorax’s magical battle to save his beloved truffula trees and the whole of Paradise Valley from the go-getting Once-ler resonates today louder than ever.
Dr. Seuss Enterprises continues to promote this ethos and used the author’s birthday to take positive action, removing six of his books from circulation, and reiterating their commitment to supporting all children and families with messages of hope, inspiration, inclusion, and friendship.
Dr Seuss’s The Lorax is the fifth in the OLD VIC: IN CAMERA series, streamed live directly from the iconic Old Vic stage with the empty auditorium as a backdrop.
Three free IN CAMERA: PLAYBACK performances of Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax will be offered to schools across the globe for Earth Day on 22 April.Find out more
