Fantastic Mr Fox is back in town!
This time, in the theatre!
Based on the story written by the world’s favourite children’s author Roald Dahl, Fantastic Mr Fox has been adapted for the silver screen and now theatre.
In 2009, Wes Anderson released the motion picture with a stellar cast of top-billing actors like George Clooney, Michael Gambon, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody, Anjelica Huston, Brian Cox, Roman Coppola, Jarvis Cocker, and Mario Batali providing some of the voices.
This year, this popular tale, adapted for stage by renowned playwright David Wood, has returned to the Singapore stage. This time, it is presented by The Little Company, the little sister of theatre giant, Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT).
Fantastic Mr Fox is a wonderfully thrilling story that keeps you on your toes as you watch with bated breath to see how he outwits his enemies.
It is a classic tale of “good vs bad” and an inspiring story of one man or fox’s drive to provide for his family.
To feed his family, Mr Fox steals from the farm. Each time he steals a chicken from the farm, Farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean grow wild with rage! They’re the nastiest crooks in the valley and they’ve concocted a cunning plan to dig Mr Fox out of his hole once and for all.
But it never occurs to them that Mr Fox has a fantastic planof his own.
This is a wonderfully thrilling plot that keeps you at the edge of your seat each time Mr Fox and his friends narrowly escapes the menacing traps set by the farmers.
