Danny the Champion of the World: Plays for Children adapted by David Wood from Roald Dahl
Could you be Danny, or his dad, or even red-faced Mr Victor Hazell? Danny thinks his dad is the most marvellous and exciting father a boy could wish for. Now you can join in their daring and devilish plots with these fun-to-perform plays adapted by David Wood.
Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children’s writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after ‘a monumental bash on the head’, sustained as an RAF pilot during the Second World War. Roald Dahl died in 1990.
David Wood works in children’s theatre with huge commitment and enthusiasm. His Dahl productions, such as The Witches, have been successful in the West End and around the country.
