The Magic Finger

A digital storytelling, in co-production with the Unicorn Theatre

The Gregg family spend every Saturday morning out in the woods searching for animals and birds to hunt.

One thing is for certain, very strange and spectacular things are about to begin...

The Witches

A co-production with the National Theatre

Everything you know about witches is wrong. Forget the pointy hats and broomsticks: they’re the most dangerous creatures on earth. And now they’ve come up with their most evil plan yet. The only thing standing in their way is Luke and his Gran. But he’s ten and she’s got a dodgy heart. Time is short, danger is everywhere, and they’ve got just one chance to stop the witches from squalloping every stinking little child in England.

The Witches is a rip-roaring musical version of Roald Dahl’s timeless tale, filled with wit, daring and heart. With book and lyrics by Olivier Award-winner Lucy Kirkwood, music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominee Dave Malloy, and directed by Lyndsey Turner.

For my lunch today I would like… a nice juicy little child!

This new musical version of Roald Dahl’s picture book has tasty tunes by Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab and a rib-tickling book and lyrics by Suhayla El-Bushra, with additional music and lyrics by Tom Brady. Developed and directed by Emily Lim and featuring a menagerie of mischievous puppets by Co-Director Toby Olié, and set and costume design by Fly Davis.
