Swizzfiggle and bellypopper – there's a Big Friendly Giant on stage.
Birmingham Repertory Theatre's Christmas family show is a new adaptation of Roald Dahl's tale of an unlikely friendship between a little orphan girl Sophie and a big giant.
Adapted by David Wood, it's a tall order to stage. Directed by Teresa Ludovico and designed by Robert Innes Hopkins, this production has a regular sized actor, Joshua Manning, taking the role of the BFG. He is thoroughly friendly with a penchant for creating huge farts – which will ensure the children a laugh or two.
