Show details

Roald Dahl's magical and darkly funny book Matlida, has been adapted for the stage by the Royal Shakespeare Company. After a successful run at Stratford, the production transfers to the West End.

The classic tale of the child genius, her awful parents, the horrific head teacher and the anarchy which ensues has been transformed into a musical by Dennis Kelly with the music and lyrics for the show put together by comedian and song writer, Tim Minchin.

Matilda's parents think she is a nuisance while she thinks they are only interested in watching TV. Life is not too great at school either, where the cruel authoritarian headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers alike. Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special telekinetic powers and decides it's time the grown ups were taught a lesson.

Dahl died in 1990 aged 74, having written some of the world's bestselling children's books, including James And The Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits and The Witches.
