Roald Dahl’s ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ Adapted for Stage

Five stories from Roald Dahl‘s Tales of the Unexpected have been adapted for the stage in the UK. On January 14th, Roald Dahl’s Twisted Tales opened for previews on the West End.

Jeremy Dyson wrote the script and Polly Findlay directed the play. The production website should be 14 or older since it is based on short stories with adult material.

Dahl first published the collection in 1979. The sixteen stories inspired a television series that lasted for nine seasons. The video embedded above features the show’s theme song. (Via the Daily Mail)
