George's Marvellous Medicine

88 London Road Productions

By Roald Dahl

George Kranky lives on a farm, managed by his mother and father. Their lives are thrown into disarray by the arrival of Grandma, who behaves appallingly. George tries to make her ‘better’ by creating a marvellous medicine, which has the most extraordinary effect on Grandma, who grows and grows until she bursts through the ceiling. George’s father realises that the magic medicine could work on his farm animals, providing extra food to help feed a hungry world. But attempts to make more medicine lead to hilarious and frustrating happenings …

Join George on his fantastic adventures at 88 London Road this summer!
