Duane Gooden in The Smartest Giant in Town at Little Angel Theatre

George wishes he wasn’t the scruffiest giant in town. So when he sees a new shop selling giant-sized clothes, he decides it’s time for a new look: smart trousers, smart shirt, stripy tie, shiny shoes. Now he’s the smartest giant in town... until he bumps into some animals who desperately need his help—and his clothes!

The Smartest Giant in Town has been adapted and directed for the stage by Little Angel artistic director Samantha Lane and award-winning musician Barb Jungr, who has also composed new music for the production. Set and costumes are designed by Kate Bunce, puppets are designed by Judith Hope and lighting is designed by Sherry Coenen. The West End cast will be Heidi Goldsmith, James Keningale and Ashton Owen.
