Written by Roald Dahl, Adapted by David Wood
A family play licensed by Samuel French Ltd. Proceeds help fund our not-for-profit community amdram
group. Directed by Lucy Campling & Claire FreemanThe story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird, and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York.
A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. The epic journey across the Atlantic is acted out with live action and storytelling in David Wood's masterful adaptation.
