Lyrics by Darren Clark, Al Muriel

Following its world premiere at the Nuffield Theatre Southhampton in December 2016, Fantastic Mr Fox transferred to the Lyric Hammersmith before embarking on a 16 venue UK tour. 

The classic Road Dahl story has been adapted by Sam Holcroft, with music by Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who). Lyrics are by Darren Clark, Al Muriel, Arthur Darvill and Sam Holcroft.

Boggis, Bunce and Bean, three greedy, smelly, horrid farmers hate the cunning Mr Fox.

Mr Fox is smart, clever and rather fantastic, but he doesn’t realise how determined the farmers are to get revenge. Can he hatch a plan to save his family and friends? Can they outrun the diggers and outsmart the farmers, and can rabbit shut up long enough not to give the game away?

“a whisker-licking treat” ★★★★ The Times

“This is a glorious, hilarious, exciting, joy of show.“ Bournemouth Echo

“A 'wondercrump' romp that will delight both kids and adults alike and have them 'churgling' from start to 'splendiferous' finish!“ Daily Echo
