BY ROALD DAHL. ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE BY DAVID WOOD
DIRECTED BY JEWELL JOHNSON
When Roald Dahl was eight years old, he and four friends were caught putting a dead mouse in a jar of Gobstoppers in the local sweet shop – and were thoroughly thrashed for it. This incident sparked young Dahl’s imagination and the seeds that were to become some of his most famous stories were sown.
In the ballroom of a seaside hotel, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children gather for their annual meeting. The Society’s nefarious purpose? The elimination of every child in England! Can a young boy, his Grandmother and his pet mice defeat the evil Grand High Witch and foil the Society’s plan?
We’d love to invite all Grans and Grandpas, Mums and Dads, Aunties and Uncles, kids and grandkids to this magical adaptation of Dahl’s deliciously wicked delight.
A warning though: no one is too young or too old for this play!
