Following a three-week run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, multi-award-winning theatre company Gagglebabble will return to Wales with their unique gig-theatre take on Roald Dahl’s short stories for adults.
Combining a sizzling hot score of original live music, macabre characters, and thrilling twists and turns, all injected with a wicked sense of dark humour, Wonderman tells the story of a WWII RAF pilot who finds himself in a hospital bed, badly injured. As he slips in and out of a world of dreams, hallucinations and nightmares, we’re taken down the strange and unexpected corridors and rabbit holes of Roald Dahl’s mind.
This is a celebration of the wonder of the world’s number one storyteller in his centenary year.
Prepare to expect the unexpected.
