Nine year old Danny lives happily in a gypsy caravan with his father but his world is turned upside-down when he learns that his father poaches pheasants from the estate of the nasty, greedy Victor Hazell. One night his father doesn't return from a poaching run and Danny fears the worst. Danny sets off on a courageous journey to find his father and with a little help from the village soon finds himself masterminding the most incredible and exciting plot ever attempted against Victor Hazell.
“David Wood’s ingenious adaptation … the rapture shown by Dad and Danny when they succeed is lovely to behold.”

“… 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.”
“… theatrical colour, real emotional depth and good old-fashioned fun … watching an audience of young people respond positively to a piece of live theatre is always a joy.”
South Wales Evening Post
“… a fine celebration of one of our finest storytellers … justice is triumphant in the end, and we are left with the warm glow that the master of storytellers intended.”
