The Princess Theatre, Burnham-on-Sea
Mole has a sudden case of spring fever, gives up on his house-cleaning, and ventures out of his home. He finds himself by a river (he has been such a stay- at-home that he has never seen it before) and meets the Water Rat, who invites Mole into his boat, something else he has never seen before. "Believe me, my young friend," Rat says dreamily, "there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."
A world of friendships, the joy of carefree wandering, of picnicking, and playing has opened for Mole. Half way through our story, the Mole, Rat and the Badger go to Toad Hall to try to help their friend Mr Toad who has a bad habit of reckless driving. Toad has quite a few adventures. His irresponsible living and extravagance lead to the loss of his home to the barbaric stoats and weasels. The four friends go to battle to regain Toad Hall. The play ends with a banquet where all the friends rejoice at Toad's return.
