As part of our celebrations for the 2017 Year of Creative Collaboration, we’re promoting two Roald Dahl initiatives to highlight literacy and theatrical arts in the UK and UAE.

Be captivated by the jaw-dropping sets and hilarious cast of characters

Adapted by Sam Holcroft, with music composed by Arthur Darvill, fans of Dahl’s work will be delighted by this rollicking theatrical production, the jaw-dropping sets and hilarious cast of characters. 

Meet the dastardly and downright disgusting farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean as they attempt to outwit the fast-thinking Fantastic Mr Fox with their cruel plans and earth-churning machinery. Who will win in the end - the fox family or the greedy human landowners? Roald Dahl’s extraordinary anamorphic characters battle it out until the bitter end.

A hugely interactive show with stunning sets, the songs are also of course all based on Dahl’s own brilliant foxy poems from the original text. If you are a Roald Dahl fan, this is the show for you.

Fantastic Mr Fox, a musical adaptation, conceived in honor of Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday, has been brought to life by producing partners Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Curve production in association with Lyric Hammersmith, and has already received acclaim following its world premier at Nuffield Southampton Theatres.
