About the show: www.rsc.org.uk

” ‘She had begun to imagine the most incredible tales, entire universes inside her head. Stories, stories! I’m a sucker for a good story…’

Welcome to the magical world of Roald Dahl’s Matilda, the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Her parents think she is a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, they are only interested in watching telly. When they are not glued to the box, her mum spends all her time practising ballroom dancing while her dad gloats about his latest dodgy business deal. Life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies students and teachers alike.

Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it’s time the grown ups were taught a lesson.

Be warned, the children are revolting…

Roald Dahl’s classic novel, loved by generations of readers young and old, has been adapted by Dennis Kelly with songs by composer and comedian Tim Minchin, in this hilarious new version from the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Running time: 2 hrs 30 mins (including interval)”
