ROALD DAHL’S GEORGE’S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE
Adapted for the stage by shake & stir theatre co
On a good day, George can’t stand his Grandma. She complains all the time, she’s mean and she smells funny. On this particular day, Grandma is much more annoying than usual and George has had enough. “George – make me a cup of tea! George – rub my feet! George – stop growing!”. Wanting to put an end to her constant nagging, George creates a special medicine, greater than any medicine in the history of the world. What he doesn’t expect is that this medicine may actually work – just not in the way he thinks…
The award-winning team behind the production of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts (2015) bring you this brand new stage adaptation from the wacky mind of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller. Direct from a sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House, George’s Marvellous Medicine is packed to the rafters with mischief, music, magic and mammoth laughs. Just remember – do not try this at home!
Please Note: This production contains haze, smoke, strobe effects and loud music. No animals (or Grandmas) will be harmed in the staging of this production.
Suitable for: Ages 6 – 106 (Grandparents beware)
