Reviews

“It was going to take someone as clever as the cunning fox himself to bring my favourite childhood book to life. And David Wood, who masterfully adapted Roald Dahl’s THE TWITS, didn’t let me down.This is a classic tale of goodies and baddies – of Mr. Fox trying to outwit the mean and repulsive farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean … this is a fantastic show to be enjoyed by kids of all ages.” - Coventry Evening Telegraph

“Another excellent adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s classic by David Wood … designed to capture fertile imaginations within its appealing storyline and simple language, no wonder it is a hit.” - The Stage

“… a packed audience sat enthralled, entertained and sometimes scared… not a dry eye in the house as the audience collapsed in hysterics at the hen-grabbing scene.” - Heartland Evening News
