ROALD DAHL’S THE WITCHES adapted for the stage by David Wood Re-imagined by Lucas Jervies

When one little boy unwittingly stumbles into the annual meeting of witches, he hears their nasty
plan to get rid of all the children in the world – by turning them into mice! It’s going to take smarts
and sneakiness to stop them and not get squished in the process.


Think you can outwit a witch and outrun a mouse? Then grab a seat in the front row for The
Witches, bursting onto the stage as a mind-boggling and madcap one-man show.


Brave boys and girls, rat-racers and retirees are in for a wicked and wonderful time. Lucas Jervies
directs this bubbling concoction, based on David Wood’s adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic, with
one actor running amok in a virtuosic physical performance.
