Plays for Children: The BFG

One night, little Sophie is whisked away by a gentle, jumbly giant who captures dreams like exotic butterflies! As she enters Giant Country, dodging monstrous beasts, the biggest adventure of her whole life is just about to begin! Bring one of Dahl’s best-loved characters to life in seven short plays which can be produced with the minimum of experience and resources. Exploring a favourite story through short dramatic acts which can be performed alone or combined together to tell the entire story, the book includes notes on staging, props and costumes.
