George's Marvellous Medicine

George's Marvellous Medicine Overview

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 Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Twits and The Witches, Curve’s magnificent new co-production with Rose Theatre Kingston promises to be yet another hugely imaginative and entertaining stage adaptation, bursting with growing grannies, feathery farm animals and bags of frothbuggling family fun.

Joining Director Julia Thomas for David Wood’s imaginative and fun-filled adaptation of the much loved classic tale will be Designer Morgan Large, Composer Tasha Taylor-Johnson (who is supported by the Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Scheme), Lighting Designer Jack Weir, Sound Designer David Gregory and Casting Director Kay Magson.
 
Taking the role of the show’s creative hero George is talented young actor Preston Nyman, son of Leicestershire-born Andy NymanLisa Howard, known for her recurring role as Grace Sheehan in Emmerdale, will play the grizzly Grandma. Completing the cast is Catherine Morris who will play George’s Mum, Justin Wilman as his Dad and Chandni Mistry as the Chicken.
 
The production is Curve’s fourth Roald Dahl adaptation following The TwitsThe Witches - which were also co-produced with the Rose - and most recently Fantastic Mr. Fox, a co-production with Nuffield Southampton Theatre which played to audiences at the Lyric Hammersmith over the summer.

Join us to see Roald Dahl’s treasured tale brought to phizz-whizzing life!
