Based on Roald Dahl’s dark short stories for adults these renowned tales are adapted for stage for the first time by The League of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson, writer of the Lyric’s smashhit Ghost Stories and director Polly Findlay as the twisted imagination and full malevolence of Dahl is revealed. Directed by Polly Findlay, winner of the JMK Trust's young theatre director award in 2007 and recipient of the 2006/7 Bulldog Princeps Bursary at the National Theatre. Findlay’s credits include Caryl Churchill’s Light Shining in Buckinghamshire (Arcola); Eigengrau (Bush); Thyestes (Arcola) and Romeo and Juliet (Battersea Arts Centre). Master of the macabre, Jeremy Dyson, has won numerous awards as the co-writer of the hilariously bleak The League of Gentlemen; including a Perrier Award, Bafta Award for Best Comedy and the Golden Rose of Montreux. The stage show he co-penned, A Local Show for Local People, was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2002.
