Danny Champion of the World – Illyria
By Roald Dahl, adapted by David Wood
Illyria is now one of the country’s foremost theatrical interpreters of Roald Dahl’s work. In our 25th anniversary, which also marks the centenary of Dahl’s birth, we have secured the rights to perform our 5th Dahl title.
Danny and his devoted father live in a caravan and operate the village’s local petrol station and garage. When Danny turns nine he is devastated to find out about his father’s secret passion for pheasant-poaching in the estate of the nasty, greedy Victor Hazell, the local wealthy landowner. One night, Danny awakes to find his father has not returned from a night of poaching. Fearing that his father may be in danger, Danny sets off to rescue him. Soon, with a little help from the village, Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible and exciting plot ever attempted against Victor Hazell.
