George's Marvellous Medicine
Most grandmothers are lovely, kind, helpful old ladies. Not George's Grandmother. George's Grandmother likes to gobble up slugs and bugs, and is always telling George what to do. But one day, when his parents leave him alone with the grizzly old grunion, George takes his chance and sets about creating a brand new medicine to cure her of her cruelty. Little does he know that his perilous potion will be the start of a rather marvellous adventure... Following the success of The Twits and The Witches, Rose Theatre Kingston's magnificent new co-production with Curve, Leicester promises to be yet another hugely imaginative and entertaining stage adaptation, bursting with growing grannies, feathery farm animals and bags of frothbuggling family fun. Join us this Easter to see Roald Dahl's treasured tale brought to phizz-whizzing life! George's Marvellous Medicine website
