The Lorax is a children's book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1971.
It chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the greedy Once-ler.
The irrepressible, big-hearted, moustachioed critter is back.
Following rave reviews and an Olivier nomination for Best Entertainment and Family show, Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax returns to The Old Vic stage.
Inspired by Dr. Seuss's classic tale, The Lorax tells of a moustachioed and cantankerous critter who's on a mission to protect the earth from the greedy, tree-chopping, Thneed-knitting businessman known only as The Once-ler.
