James and the Giant Peach

 

Orphan James Henry Trotter was sent to live with his evil aunts, Spiker and Sponge, after his parents were killed in a tragic rhinoceros accident. Just when James thinks he will never be allowed to have fun again he meets an old man who gives him a bag containing the ingredients for the strongest magic potion in the world. When James accidentally spills it near the old peach tree in his aunts' garden the most marvelous things start to happen and he begins the greatest adventure of his life.

Roald Dahl’s classic tale follows the adventurous, young James and his friends – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird and Earthworm. Beginning at the end of the story, like all great tales do, James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York, but the real story lies in how they got there, all the way from the White Cliffs of Dover.

REVIEWS

"It’s fast, it’s funny, it’s irreverent and there’s a lot of audience participation if you feel like cheering our heroes on their way. It’s a simple show, directed with imagination and real verve by Bronagh Lagan, and allows the actors to really engage with their audience."

"A genuine family treat."
