Writers: Playwrights

David manages to combine the careers of actor, writer, director, producer, composer and magician.  For many years, he has been recognised as the ‘national children’s dramatist’ (Irving Wardle, The Times) and his plays have been performed all over the world. He was awarded the OBE in 2004.

THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA

“If there were a checklist for what comprises great children's theatre, David Wood's adaptation of Judith Kerr's note-perfect picture book would tick a lot of boxes. It's a proper magic-and-mayhem show, full of silliness and sleight-of-hand.” (The Guardian)

 “It can be difficult to find shows suitable for the very young - the best theatre for tiddlypeeps often has a rather frustrating five-plus recommendation - but here is a show that will mesmerise toddlers of pre-school age, and even kept a babe-in-arms enthralled for the duration.. Altogether, it’s a wonderful introduction to the magic of the theatre.” (The Stage)

 

GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM

 Winner of the OLIVIER AWARD FOR BEST ENTERTAINMENT AND FAMILY 2013

 “Wood’s play has all the hallmarks of an award-winner too I defy you not to shed a tear. An excellent evening for young, old and everyone in between.” (What’s On Stage)

 

THE GINGERBREAD MAN

“the perfect children’s play” (Time Out) “a consistently fresh and  enjoyable writer who combines attractive tunes and good humour with considerable dramatic vigour…..pacy storytelling which is packed with manic chases, gloriously corny jokes and hair-raising escapes from death.” (Evening Standard)

 

THE WITCHES

“this verminous entertainment has a good hiss-and-boo rating and can be warmly recommended to dutiful parents as well as their children” (Daily Telegraph)

“In the season of licensed much, along comes David Wood’s cracking adaptation…” (Guardian) “Terrific.” (Time Out)

 

GEORGE’S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE

“Nasty, naughty fun.” (Times)

 

GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU

“You have to be pretty artful to turn a picture book of few words into a 55 minute show for the under-fives, and David Wood does it with charm and confidence.” (The Guardian)
