Tom Morton-Smith: My Neighbour Totoro



November 24, 2023




Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave, London, W1D 6AR

Join award-winning playwright, Tom Morton-Smith, as he discusses bringing the Studio Ghibli classic, My Neighbour Totoro, to the stage! The “awe-inspiring” (Time Out), “dazzling” (Guardian) show broke box office records in 2022, becoming the fastest selling show in the Barbican’s history. It opened to critical acclaim and went on to win six Olivier Awards and five WhatsOnStage Awards!

“A tender and remarkably beautiful show” (Financial Times) “Huge, healing hug of a show” (The Stage)

Ask Tom questions about his career to date, and transforming My Neighbour Totoro into an “utterly beguiling” (The Stage) and “jaw-dropping” (Metro) stage production, or quiz him about his upcoming play The Earthworks, which opens at the Young Vic in March 2024!

Please note, this Masterclass will take place at the Gielgud Theatre.
