JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH
by Roald Dahl
Adapted by David wood
The story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird, and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York.
A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. The epic journey across the Atlantic is acted out with live action, puppetry and storytelling in David Wood's masterful adaptation.
“… a great introduction for first-timers to the work of the masterful Dahl … a theatrical treat for children and adults alike.“ Belfast Newsletter
