Roald Dahl’s comic masterpiece, George’s Marvellous Medicine, comes to the Theatre Royal in Nottingham from February 1-5.

George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, in a brand new stage version by leading children’s dramatist, David Wood, is coming along to delight family audiences.

First published in 1981, George’s Marvellous Medicine is one of Dahl’s funniest and most exciting stories, all about a young boy who makes a marvellous new medicine to cure his grandmother of her terrifying temper. But when his grandmother drinks his special new potion the results are explosive and the most incredible things begin to happen – it’s the start of George’s amazing adventures which provide a wonderful knockabout comic romp for the audience

This will be the seventh Dahl Christmas show that Birmingham Stage Company has presented. BSC’s founder and actor/manager, Neal Foster, said today: “Our new adaptation by David Wood will take the show onto a new level – we think it’s one of the most exciting show for children we’ve ever staged!”

Ticket prices are £8.50-£15.50 (plus concessions available). Call the box office on 0115 989 5555.
