The Birmingham Stage Company presents
George’s Marvellous Medicine
by Roald Dahl adapted by David Wood

Birmingham Stage Company present Roald Dahl’s amazing story about a young boy who makes a marvellous new medicine to cure his grandmother of her terrifying temper.
But when his grandmother drinks his special new potion, the most incredible things start to happen. And George’s adventure has just begun!... Read more >>

George is alone again with his grandma. Most grandmas are sweet and friendly — but not George's Ggrandma! She's nasty, she yells at George all the time, and she might even be a witch! George has had enough of his grouchy grandma. He thinks the solution might be to replace her regular medicine with some marvelous medicine that he will make out of all sorts of ingredients. George's medicine works so marvelously well that Grandma — and his family — will never be the same again!

The story begins when George's mother goes into town, leaving George all alone with his grandma. Encourage your students to think of other examples of stories where the action begins as soon as the parents leave. (If they have difficulty, you can prompt them with a title, and ask specific students for a summary.) Some examples are The Cat in the Hat , Mary Poppins , and Home Alone . Read them the first few pages of George's Marvelous Medicine and ask your students to make predictions of what they think might happen.

After your class finishes reading George's Marvelous Medicine , celebrate with your own Marvelous Medicine Punch! Make it in a big punch bowl with a ladle, and for a really great effect, use dry ice around the punch bowl to create a magical, misty look! There are many punch recipes that you can follow: maybe you'd like to make a super fruit punch by mixing together juices like orange, cranberry, and pineapple, or maybe you'd like to combine sherbet and ginger ale together for a sweet, fizzy punch. We have listed our own suggestion below:

I absolutely loved the book, and when I read it I would burst into laughter. This is the second time that I have read this book, and I still enjoy reading it.

My favourite character was George because he was very inventive and brave in making the marvellous medicine. My second favourite character was Mr. Kranky because he wanted to make the marvellous medicine again. They thought they had got every ingredient but they were always missing something out, so he had to go back and forth to the supermarket.

My least favourite character was Grandma because she was nasty, cruel, disrespectful, selfish, and grumpy to George. Poor George was left alone with his horrible and selfish grandma who ordered him about.
