The Royal Shakespeare Company and Executive Producer Joe Hisaishi, present the global premiere of Japanese creative powerhouse Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbour Totoro live on stage at London’s Barbican.

This magical coming-of-age story has captured the hearts of film watchers for decades and now comes to life on the stage in a highly anticipated world premiere. The show celebrates and discovers the magic of the fantasy world of childhood and the extraordinary power of imagination to change our lives. My Neighbour Totoro tells the story of sisters Satsuki and Mei and one remarkable summer in their lives. Their mother is recuperating from an illness at a rural convalescent hospital so their father decides to move the family to the countryside so they can be closers to her.

The girls enjoy exploring the beauty of their new home. Whilst exploring, Mei comes across magical creatures and also crossed paths with the ancient protector of the forest she calls Totoro. Satsuki is slow to believe her little sister but before long they are swept up together in exhilarating new adventures. With their new neighbours, they are taken on a journey to a long-lost realm of spirits, sprites and natural wonders.

My Neighbour Totoro will play a strictly limited 15-week season from 8 October 2022 - 21 January 2023 and promises to delight all generations.
