The Times on Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox

Written by Roald Dahl
Adapted for the stage by Sam Holcroft

‘You know as well as I do: no-one outfoxes a fox’

Boggis, Bunce and Bean, three greedy, smelly, horrid farmers, hate the cunning Mr Fox.

Mr Fox is smart, clever and rather fantastic, but he doesn’t realise how determined the farmers are to get revenge. Can he hatch a plan to save his family and friends? Can they outrun the diggers and outsmart the farmers? And can Rabbit shut up long enough not to give the game away?

Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox is family fun at its finest. A juicy tale of greed, pride and the power of friendship, this flagship production for the Roald Dahl centenary celebrations promises a dahlicious theatrical feast with live music and songs and gloriumptious designs. A wondercrump treat for the whole family!

Running time: About 2 hours (including a 15 minute interval)
