Culture Express : Come, fans of Roald Dahl!

【明報專訊】Are you a fan of Roald Dahl? The 13th of this month is his birthday! He was the one who wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and one of his most famous novels Matilda. This Royal Shakespeare Company's reworking of the novel by Dahl has got good reviews. Its music was done by an Olivier Award winner. Also, its set and costume designer is a Tony award winner.

Matilda is a 5-year‑old girl who is intelligent beyond her years. Her love of reading is not encouraged by her parents. Growing up she realises that she is able to use her mental power to change the state or position of an object. Thus she is determined to face the domineering Miss Trunchbull. She revels in (享受) reading and would rather spend time with older folks than play with her classmates. It is through all these events that she starts unchaining (釋放) her imagination.
