A week in the life of The Borrowers' Ed MacArthur
As the Watermill Theatre's Christmas show begins, actor Ed MacArthur takes us to Newbury to see the magic happening behind the scenes
Ed MacArthur's theatre credits include the UK tour of Arcadia, Swansong at the New Diorama Theatre and Murder for Two at the Watermill Theatre.
He returns to the Watermill Theatre this Christmas in The Borrowers, an adaptation of Mary Norton's novel by Theresa Heskins. He's playing Crampfurl and Spiller in the tale of tiny people who borrow stuff from human beings.

Looking the part

All the gang's here!
EM: "Final group selfie before the dress rehearsal!''
