The sci-fi reworking of The Wind in the Willows, with experimental art group Figs in Wigs, runs at Cambridge Junction from 11th December until 5th January.

The production has been well reviewed, with The Stage praising it as a 'a deliciously alternative and modern Christmas show', and noting the support of Tom's 'thoughtful and bright electro-musical soundscapes'.

Tom also recently spent a few days at the National Theatre of Belgium, researching a new collaborative project with the scenographer Anne Marcq. They met whilst working on the play Ur by Sulayman Al Bassam in Munich and Tunisia last year, and found that they shared a number of creative interests.
