Created by Julian BleachAnthony CairnsJulian CrouchGraeme GilmourTamzin GriffinJo PocockPhelim McDermottMichael Morris and The Tiger Lillies(Martyn Jacques, Adrian Huge and Adrian Stout) the production combines elements of pantomime and puppetry with musical versions of the poems with the songs generally following the text but with a somewhat darker tone. Whereas the children in the poems only sometimes die, in the musical they all do. Commissioned by the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds and the Lyric Hammersmith in West London, the show debuted in 1998 in Leeds before moving to London and subsequently to world tours.
