About The Witches

Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. There are no pointy hats and broomsticks, in fact, they’re the most dangerous and deceiving creatures to ever walk the earth, and they prey on the innocence of little children. With their toeless feet and scaly balding heads, they can only hide under their masks for so long…not that they need to, as now they’re conjuring up their most evil plan yet.

The only thing between the witches and the extermination of children is little Luke and his Gran. However, he’s ten and she’s got a dodgy heart and a missing thumb from her last deadly encounter with a witch. 

The clock is ticking, danger is around every corner, and they’ve got just one chance to stop the witches from squalloping every stinking little child in England. 

The History of The Witches

The Witches, one of Dahl's most beloved stories, is a masterful blend of his trademark humour and heart-stopping action. It features one of his most iconic characters, the evil Grand High Witch, and has become a fan favourite across generations, with over 11 million copies sold since its initial publication.

The story was adapted into a 1990 dark fantasy comedy horror film, directed by Nicolas Roeg and produced by Jim Henson. It starred Anjelica Huston, Mai Zetterling, Rowan Atkinson, and Jasen Fisher, and followed the plot of the 1983 book. The story revolves around a group of evil witches who disguise themselves as regular women, and a young boy and his grandmother who must find a way to stop their nefarious plans.

The film was highly acclaimed by critics and has gained a cult following over the years for its stunning visual effects and chilling costumes. It has become a popular favourite among children throughout the United Kingdom.

The National Theatre production of The Witches currently boasts a star-studded cast, with three-time Olivier-nominated actress Katherine Kingsley (The Larkins) taking on the role of the Grand High Witch and BAFTA Award-winner Daniel Rigby (One Man, Two Guvnors) portraying Mr. Stringer. 

Directed by Lyndsey Turner, who previously worked on The Crucible, the production features book and lyrics by Olivier Award-winner Lucy Kirkwood (Mosquitoes) and music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominee Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812).
