Matilda at The Cambridge Theatre

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda has been delighting audiences, both young and old, since its first opening night in 2010 in Stratford upon Avon. It has since moved to the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End and has also opened on New York’s Broadway.

Based on the Roald Dahl story, Matilda tells of a little girl with a big imagination. Unhappy with her lot living at home with her mother, who is obsessed with ballroom dancing, and her father, a dodgy used car salesman. She also has little in common with her gormless brother. To take her away from all of this she spends her time reading, something her father disapproves of, he thinks watching television is far more worthwhile.

Life at school is no better under the strict regime of the demonic headmistress Miss Trunchbull who frightens both the children and their teacher Miss Honey. One day young Matilda Wormwood discovers she has a very special power and suddenly things begin to change…

Written by the playwright Dennis Kelly, with lyrics and music by the Australian musician and comedian Tim Minchin, Matilda has been showered with both critical acclaim and awards. It has won a place in the Guinness Book of Records by scooping an unprecedented seven gongs at the 2012 Laurence Olivier Awards.

You can book your tickets to see Matilda safely and securely on the website right now.
