Roald Dahl’s classic book about the 24-feet-high Big Friendly Giant and a little orphan called Sophie brings to the stage some of Dahl’s most memorable characters. The BFG and Sophie team up to save the children of England from the child-eating giants, Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater, Bonecruncher, Meatdripper, Childchewer, and Gizzardgulper. They are assisted by the Queen of England and the Heads of the Army and Airforce with their helicopters. Locations include the BFG’s cave in Giant Country, Dream Country and Buckingham Palace.
