Illyria presents DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD by Roald Dahl,

29th May 2016 @ 15:00 - 17:15


In its 25th anniversary Illyria, now one of the country’s foremost interpreters of Roald Dahl’s work, is proud to perform a fifth Dahl title, adapted by David Wood, suitable for all ages.

Danny and his devoted father live in a caravan and operate the 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.

Illyria promises a magnificent, funny and heartwarming story perfectly suited to the open-air setting of the ECOS amphitheatre, so bring picnics and cushions. In the event of bad weather the performance will move inside.

Adults £14.50, Concessions £9.50,
Family ticket £40
