George’s Marvellous Medicine
Adapted for the stage by shake & stir theatre co
Direct from a sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House, George’s Marvellous Medicine returns to QPAC packed to the rafters with even more mischief, music, magic and mammoth laughs. Just remember – do not try this at home!
What starts as just another boring day for George quickly turns into a marvellous experiment of epic proportions! Cleverly adapted from the much loved book by Roald Dahl, George’s Marvellous Medicine bounds off the page in a spectacular live show for the whole family.
On a good day, George can’t stand his Grandma. She complains all the time, she’s mean and she smells funny. On this particular day, Grandma is much more annoying than usual and George has had enough. “George – make me a cup of tea! George – rub my feet! George – stop growing!” Ugh. Wanting to put an end to her constant nagging, George creates a special medicine, greater than any medicine in the history of the world. What he doesn’t expect is that this medicine may actually work – just not in the way he thinks...
The award-winning team behind the multi-Helpmann Award nominated Australian production of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts brings you this new stage adaptation from the wacky mind of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller.
