Synopsis

Boggis, Bunce and Bean
One fat, one short, one lean
These horrible crooks
So different in looks
Were nonetheless equally mean

 Roald Dahl's stories are adored by young readers worldwide and Fantastic Mr. Fox must be one of his best-loved characters. Adapted for the stage by David Wood, the UK’s National Children's Dramatist, this show promises to be a rip-roaring tale of wit and determination. Catch Fantastic Mr Fox live on stage before it hits the big screen this year-end in the Wes Anderson movie of the same name. Nothing beats the magic of live theatre!   

Boggis, Bunce and Bean are three greedy, loathsome farmers out to make life miserable for Mr Fox, his family and their animal friends. The farmer trio devise devious plans to drive the animals away - they hunt them, they bring in their shovels and dogs and big machines to dig them out, they camp out for days on end at the foxhole hoping to starve them out – terrible things! What can Mr Fox do? The fate of the animal folk are in his cunning hands and it’s up to him to outsmart them with some “digga-digga-dig” antics. 

Come and join the celebrations as the animals dance the night away, feasting and telling the tale of Boggis, Bunce, Bean and the one and only…. Fantastic Mr. Fox
