Dahl’s much-loved story follows the vain attempts of three farmers—Boggis, Bunce, and Bean, one fat, one short, one lean—to get rid of the fox who regularly steals food from their farms. They try to kill him by any means possible. Outwitted at every turn, the farmer’s ploys backfire. The fantastic Mr. Fox devises a plan which will ensure full stomachs for not only his family, but all his friends, who celebrate with a sumptuous feast. David Wood’s adaptation of the book was first performed at the Belgrade Theatre in England in 2001. Wood, an actor, composer, producer, director, magician, and playwright, created the popular animated children’s television series The Gingerbread Man. Wood has adapted other books by Dahl including The BFG, The Twits, and The Witches.
