In 2011, producer Jamie Hendry commissioned George Stiles and Anthony Drewe to write the music and lyrics for a new stage musical version of Kenneth Grahame’s wild tale about the thrill-seeking, lovable menace Mr Toad. The show saw Stiles + Drewe reunite with book writer Julian Fellowes, who they had previously worked with on Mary Poppins and Half A Sixpence.
