A little known Roald Dahl play is coming to Scotland for the first time in spring.
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar is taken from a collection of seven short stories by the children’s novelist and will premiere at Perth Theatre from March 24 2022.
The play will also tour to the MacRobert Arts Centre in Stirling and Eden Court in Inverness.
Adapted for the stage by Rob Drummond and directed by Ben Harrison, the tale travels from the slums of Bombay to the glamour of international casinos, with the characters discovering the dangers of actually getting what you want.
The Roald Dahl Story Company said: “When ground-breaking producer Helen Milne came to us with the idea to reimagine The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar as a Roald Dahl Magic Show, we found the combination of producer and concept to be equally irresistible.
“With the brilliant team of writer Rob Drummond and director Ben Harrison, working alongside Helen, we are confident that audiences are set to experience a show which delivers magic at every level.”
