Deliciously adapted from Roald Dahl’s 1988 children’s story, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s irresistible production (directed by Matthew Warchus) is a treat for any time of year.

Cleo Demetriou’s Matilda  (one of four youngsters sharing the title role) is a cheeky, book-loving, moral-minded prankster who, aged five, reads Dostoevsky for fun and pits her wits and telekinetic powers against Bertie Carvel’s sadistic headmistress (all puffed up pouter pigeon bosom and hairy legs) and her vulgar family (ballroom fanatic mum and Paul Kaye’s dodgy car salesman dad).

Tim Minchin’s music and witty lyrics, Dennis Kelly’s astute script and Peter Darling’s inventively athletic choreography combine with a touch of magic and a clutch of talented kids to ensure a happy ending and a great night out.
