Why Watch Matilda

Matilda is a magical story by Roald Dahl that highlights a person’s fight for what they believe in and what they desire. The play delves even deeper into these themes due to the writing of Dennis Kelly and direction of Matthew Warchus. The lyrics add a sense of mischief and light-hearted glee to the musical, and only make the experience of watching it richer. Opening to five star reviews across the board, Matilda is a wonderful choice for anyone who wants to see how powerful and entertaining theatre can truly be.

The Story

The story tells the life of a young girl, Matilda. The musical begins with her birth and moves on to describe her unhappy upbringing as she lives with her TV-addicted family and bears their constant abuse. She is an intelligent child who loves reading even though her family believes that it is a complete waste of one’s time. Due to the abuse she faces, Matilda often plays pranks on people aided by her telekinetic powers. Matilda even plays pranks on her school’s headmistress, Mrs. Trunchbull whom she believes to be a bully. Soon, she develops a strong friendship with her teacher Miss Honey, who admires Matilda’s intellect and almost magical abilities. The story progresses to explore the relationship between Matilda and Miss Honey, and Matilda’s desire for freedom.
