The Witches

Roald Dahl’s The Witches, adapted for the stage by David Wood. Directed by Bear Pit Artistic Director David Mears

This is a faithful adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story in which Boy and his Grandmother defeat the Grand High Witch and her followers, who are holding a Conference in an English seaside hotel. During the struggle, Boy gets turned into a mouse.

The Witches are nothing like the ones who wear pointed hats and fly on broomsticks – they look very much like ordinary women, which helps their deception. The play offers many opportunities for illusions and inventive puppetry. Humour is provided by the vulgar Jenkins family, whose son, Bruno, also becomes a mouse.

“While the kids will be thrilled by the dazzling illusions and the complex puppetry, their parents will be no less engaged by the sly humor that lurks within this ostensibly frivolous confection.” – What’s On
