The Witches

Thu 26 November - Thu 31 December

Dundee Rep Ensemble presents
The Witches
by Roald Dahl adapted by David Wood 

‘My darling boy, you won’t last long in this world if you don’t know how to spot a witch when you see one.’ 

Witches really are detestable creatures. 

They disguise themselves as lovely ladies, when secretly they want to squish and squelch all the wretched children they despise. They don’t ride around on broomsticks; they don’t even wear black cloaks and hats.

Luckily one boy and his grandmother know how to recognise these vile creatures, but can
they get rid of them for good? 

Join our young hero as he discovers the real truth about real witches. 

This is the story of courage in the face of a fiendish plan hatched by the Grand High Witch and the most mischievous gathering of witches ever assembled.


Award-winning Dundee Rep Theatre has brought you two enthralling Roald Dahl Christmas productions and this year is excited to bring you number three with Roald Dahl’s most deliciously monstrous story, The Witches

You can find out about Roald Dahl’s real-life experiences and how they found their way into his stories at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire (the author’s home village). The Museum is a charity which aims to inspire excitement about reading, writing and creativity. There are three fun and fact-packed galleries, with lots to make, do and see (including Roald Dahl’s writing hut). Aimed at 6-12 year-olds, the Museum is open to the public and to school groups throughout the year.

Roald Dahl is famous for his stories and rhymes, but much less well known is how often he went out of his way to help seriously ill children. Today Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity helps children with the severest conditions and the greatest needs. The charity believes every child can have a more marvellous life, no matter how ill they are, or how short their life may be.
