Roald Dahl’s
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar
Adapted for stage by Rob Drummond
Directed by Ben Harrison

Co-produced by Perth Theatre, Helen Milne Productions and The Roald Dahl Story Company

A Roald Dahl Magic Show.

From the master of the uncanny comes a comic, dark and delightful tale of the obsessive hunt for power. From the slums of Bombay to the glamour of international casinos to the pinging, all-consuming world of social media, our characters discover the dangers of actually getting what you want.

an idle playboy who longs for even more money…
a teenage girl who longs for online fame...
a conjuror who longs to be believed…

Roald Dahl’s The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar is brought to the UK stage for the first time in this breath-taking new show. Expect magic. Expect illusion. Expect the unexpected.

“You asked to hear my story. Whether or not there is an explanation, I do not know. All I know is that real magic exists. And I found it.”
