Adapted for the stage by shake & stir theatre co

No one outfoxes a fox, especially not the horrible and greedy farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean – one fat, one short, one lean.

Dahl’s much-loved favourite leaps off the page (and all over the stage) in a spectacular new production from the team behind the award winning, sold out national tours of George’s Marvellous Medicine and Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts.

When Mr Fox needs to save his family and friends, he’ll go to any length (above or underground) to outwit the mean humans. Join Mr Fox and his team of furry friends as they bounce, burrow and bewilder their way to safety. Packed with Dahlicious mischief, hilarious mayhem and humongous belly laughs, Fantastic Mr Fox is the perfect holiday tale for the whole clan.

You’ve read the book, seen the movie – now experience this world-premiere stage adaptation from the wacky mind of the world’s No. 1 Storyteller.
