David Wood from Roald Dahl

Published by Samuel French Ltd

An ingenious adaptation by David Wood of the Roald Dahl children's classic ...

Set in England in the Autumn of 1955, a widowed father and his son live an idyllic life together

But there's a problem - their gas station happens to sit on a piece of land that local developer Hazell wants to buy

And he won't take no for an answer

"... as fine a piece of theatre for young people as one could hope to see ... moving, uplifting, funny and fast-moving ... captures the spirit of Dahl's work in a highly persuasive and heartwarming manner" ~ Theatre-Wales
