Roald Dahl's Hilarious Story on Stage
Tim Minchin's glorious new musical is every bit as good as Roald Dahl's fantastic original children's story. The parents of Matilda Wormwood have no time for their daughter. If they did they would discover that she is incredibly gifted. Unfortunately they see her as nothing but a nuisance and would much rather she kept quiet and out of their way. School should offer a welcome sanctuary, except that monstrous Headteacher Miss Trunchbull rules with a rod of iron by punishing the downtrodden children for the most trivial of reasons. Then, one day, Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time to get her own back and teach the grown-ups a lesson!
