7 days from now
This interpretation of Dahl’s scariest tale is full of life, physical movement & mischief City News

A Griffin Theatre Company Presentation

Adapted for the stage by David Wood
Re-imagined by Lucas Jervies

Brave boys and girls, rat-racers and retirees are in for a wicked and wonderful time seeing this mind-boggling madcap one man show.

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.

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.

Recommended for ages 6+
